About the webinar

Technology accessibility is increasingly important in higher education from legal and ethical standpoints: inaccessible websites and digital content erect barriers and put colleges and universities at legal risk, and, as online course content has become integral to teaching and learning, instructors and instructional designers are increasingly called on to ensure higher education is accessible to all.

A focus on accessibility and Universal Design for Learning, a framework for curriculum development that gives all individuals equal opportunities to learn, can also result in better course design by eliminating technical barriers, fostering various forms of engagement, and optimizing teaching and learning for all.
