Road of Accommodation to Accessibility


Accessibility is a hot topic in higher education and for good reason—education should embrace and welcome learners of all abilities. We, as college administrators, faculty and staff, are responsible for ensuring an inclusive learning environment for all of our students. What’s the difference between accommodation and accessibility? How do you ensure your courses are accessible for all students? We’ll share our road-trip experience from three perspectives: disability services coordinator, faculty and instructional designer. We’ll talk about our unexpected speed bumps along the way, how we’ve used the QM rubric, Ally and other tools to drive our progress, and how we plan to reach our destination. Participants will receive practical application tools and information to help with their own journey to Accessibility.
