Summary

The OCR resolution process has a tendency to induce panic in educators nationwide. This presentation will give you the perspective you need to not only get through a resolution, but to build a scalable process for your unique needs.

Abstract

Educational institutions have a large incentive to work towards compliance with accessibility standards. In the quest to provide information to students, teachers, and community members, it’s possible you’ll find your institution involved in the OCR resolution process. Kevin Rydberg, Senior Digital Accessibility Consultant with Siteimprove, will offer strategies for building a process to work through OCR resolution, no matter what your needs. He will discuss topics like:

- How access to resources, training, and technologies can affect your approach to an OCR resolution. - Plans for creating a scalable process that works for your institution’s specific needs. - Accessibility as a cultural issue and how changing perspectives affect the resolution process.

Accessing Higher Ground attendees will leave with a firmer understanding of how to approach an OCR resolution, as well as the tools they’ll need to build a strategic plan to achieve ongoing accessibility compliance.
