Common national issues around digital accessibility often perplex institutions, cause anxiety, and frame campus conversations on institutional accessibility. Dr. Rowland will help lead participants to identify action steps they can take to improve, or even restart, accessibility efforts and institutional initiatives.
At the end of this session, learners will be able to:
- Identify issues that perplex many institutions as they work to improve digital accessibility.
- Identify at least one issue that, if improved, would help their institutional efforts.
- Locate resources to help guide improvements.
