Breaking Down Barriers

Stories & Resources: Community, Culture and Accessibility

May 2021

This conference is an opportunity to engage in best practices in moving your instruction and your campus to a more inclusive culture. Each Friday, you will have the opportunity to engage with expert presenters that highlight and celebrate being accessible, designing with educational technologies that work for everyone, working towards institutional compliance, and designing your course to have a focus on inclusive course design. Not only will you be engaged and hear from experts, you'll also hear from your peers and your students. Each Friday begins with a keynote presentation followed by the option of selecting one of three tracks during the Zoom session. Choose to attend a lightning round with four, 15-minute presentations, a panel presentation track or, hear more from the keynote presenter. Afterwards, engage with participants all month long in our back-channel chat. We hope you'll join us as we Break Down the Barriers and share stories and resources to help you and your campus on your accessibility journey.
