Teaching, Learning & Technology Workshop Registration


  • IT accessibility is a compliance risk for institutions as reliance on electronic information and resources changes and grows precipitously. Create an inclusive practice of making your campus' electronic materials – websites, instructional materials, multi-media, and more – usable by people with and without disabilities and give all users equal access. As a result of this webinar, you will be able to:

    · Identify the legal requirements outlined in Section 508 of The Rehabilitation Act and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0)
    · Assess and audit your campus' IT accessibility
    · Understand the process for determining reasonable accommodations for your students in order to adequately meet valid requests
    · Comprehend your Institutional rights and responsibilities
    · Establish or amend policies/procedures pertaining to web accessibility
    · Create an environment that supports, fosters, and provides students with self-advocacy

    The TLT will host this webinar in the Center for Global Citizenship
