Proactively Ensuring that all Electronic Information Technology (EIT) is Accessible at Your Institution

November 15 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)
until November 24, 2017

Electronic formats for registration, course materials, advertisement, even campus ID cards are increasingly popular among college and universities due to their ease of use. However, many colleges have not considered the impact that these “easy-to-use” tools have on students with disabilities. This session will share how the current laws, standards for accessibility and WCAG guidelines intersect and impact any Electronic Information Technology (EIT) purchased or used on a college campus. We will provide best practices and examples on how to encourage and teach faculty to own the accessibility of their course content without overwhelming them. And finally, the day will conclude by looking at how universities have created a cultural of access with regards to EIT.

Session Outcomes:

  1. What types of EIT does my campus rely on and is currently using?
  2. What is the current procurement process? Is there opportunity for me to insert access into it? If so, how?
  3. Who are key campus partners that I can rely on for added support? How are other initiatives passed by upper administration? What can I learn from that?
