S.01, Ep.02: Accessibility at CAST, Moving into Policy
In part 2 of our three-part series on The Accessible Learning Experience podcast focusing on the history of accessibility at CAST, CAST co-founder Skip Stahl picks up the story from David Rose in the mid-1990s, when CAST becomes more involved in the world of policy in order to have a broader impact with initiatives such as the National Instructional Materials Accessibility Standard or NIMAS, and creation of the National Center on Accessing the General Curriculum. Skip and David speak to the consensus building and collaboration needed to bring a range of stakeholders to the table in order to make meaningful change and concrete outcomes, which continue to have a significant impact on learners everywhere to this day.
