Free Webinar—Scaling Inclusion in the Transition to Remote Teaching
The DAISY Consortium has announced the launch of a series of free weekly webinars on accessible publishing and reading in response to the multiple challenges being faced by conferences around the world due to Coronavirus, as well as feedback from the wider DAISY community expressing interest in online training resources.
Following the rapid transition to remote instruction, a sudden increase in digital content and reliance on distance learning modalities amplified many existing academic barriers for students with disabilities, low-income students, and first-generation students.
To better understand these access challenges in digital learning content, we will explore recent trends in accessibility data from 1000s of institutions around the world who are using the Blackboard A11y solution. The session will look at the immediate impact of student choice and access, accessibility related information which can empower academic leaders, tools for content remediation and resources which can help professional learning for faculty when designing inclusive remote teaching experiences.
