Learn how accessibility topics can be integrated into computing/IT courses
AccessComputing, in collaboration with Accessing Higher Ground and Promoting the Integration of Universal Design into University Curricula (UDUC), will host Teaching about Accessibility in Computing and IT Courses: A Capacity-building Institute to provide techniques and strategies for teaching about accessibility in Computer Science and IT curriculum. The Institute can be attended in person or virtually.
Presenters and panelists will share how accessibility/inclusive/universal design topics can be integrated into your computing/IT course or how you can encourage faculty in these fields to include these topics in their courses. Speakers will bring in perspectives and promising practices from the field. Discussions will be facilitated to explore key issues related to promoting the teaching of inclusive design strategies in computing and IT courses at all levels, but particularly in postsecondary environments. Resources will also be shared.
