Learn ways to build a digital accessibility framework, plan, and program toolkit, and explore how to apply Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). Topics will include building a culture of accessibility, training, course design, guiding a campus-wide committee, recruiting qualified staff, tapping into existing communities of practice, developing a plan, and designing a policy or initiative. You'll also discover a staged approach for adopting Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and digital accessibility, which allows for continual improvement and reevaluation within your program, course, or plan.
