Designing Online Programs with Accessibility in Mind

Thursday, January 17 | 10:30AM–11:15AM | Harborside Ballroom B
Session Type: Professional Development
Attend this session to learn about planning and implementing a successful accessibility initiative. This session is ideal for those interested in making online programs accessible to students with disabilities. We will discuss our experiences in engaging stakeholders, getting commitment from each team, measuring where the organization stands with respect to accessibility, prioritizing items to tackle, addressing issues in creating and implementing an accessibility policy, and providing an escalation path for exceptions. You will learn the best practices of a team that has been in the trenches. You will also have an opportunity to share your own ideas on making educational programs accessible.
