Satellite Broadcast - Untangling the Web: Making Online Teaching and Learning Accessible

You are invited to a live satellite broadcast on accessibility in online teaching and learning scheduled for Thursday, April 22, 2004 from 2:30-4:00 pm in room 8-300. The broadcast will be in the form of a moderated panel discussion with call-in questions from participants at sites around the country.

Areas the program will cover include:  how students with disabilities are navigating the Web, and how inaccessible course content impacts the work of faculty and staff; how to address accessibility problems posed by courseware, course management systems, multimedia, and use of audio and video in online courses; what kind of collaborative models have been developed to help faculty and staff meet the challenge of online accessibility; how to develop institutional coordination policies in your campus or organization; what faculty and staff development programs can do to enhance understanding of disability and technology; what role good teaching plays in improving online accessibility, and how Universal Design and Universal Design for Instruction can inform the process of ensuring online accessibility.
