Find a Path! Two Different Approaches to Scaling Course Accessibility Training

Brief Description

Wouldn't it be great to be a new college? Distance learning courses, proactively designed from scratch to meet accessibility standards, would eliminate terms like "legacy course" and "faculty buy-in".  Imagine a world where WCAG did not require a Google search on acronyms.

Knowledge, attitudes and practices, at both the institution and the course design level, must be addressed in order to create an online environment where students with disabilities have an equal opportunity to access course content. In other words, making stuff accessible is hard.  This session will share two different approaches to accessibility training.  Attendees will leave with ideas for their own institutions and an appreciation for how a little leadership can go a long way at helping others create accessible learning content.
