Teach Access: Teaching Digital Accessibility
Teach Access, an initiative started in 2016 to support “the teaching of accessible technology design and development,” will be giving away 20 awards this summer to faculty or instructional staff at U.S.-based institutions. The awards of $5,000 will be given to teachers to include digital accessibility in their Fall 2018-Spring 2019 curriculums.
These awards are meant to focus on how well courses address digital accessibility issues, not on making course material more accessible. The awards are also meant to incorporate the teaching of digital accessibility into existing curriculums, not creating new curriculums focusing on digital accessibility.
This is very important to us at A360 because we are dedicated to making the Internet accessible for everyone. The Teach Access initiative is designed to increase understanding of digital accessibility issues, which is similar to A360’s work.
