IT Accessibility Special Issues Forum

Wednesday, October 19 | 12:30PM–1:20PM | Meeting Room 202A
Session Type: E11
We will discuss current and emerging issues related to IT accessibility, focusing especially on policy and law. Several current activities at the federal level, as well as multiple law suits and formal complaints against higher education institutions for using inaccessible technologies, are forcing us all to take IT accessibility more seriously. We will discuss implications and share strategies and best practices for ensuring our institutions' technologies are accessible to all learners. Anyone with a leadership role in IT is encouraged to participate.
