This monthly series is designed to increase the participants awareness and knowledge of accessibility. The series was created in response to conversations in Accessibility Chair meetings where there was a strong desire for collaboration with experienced and new faculty and staff members come together to address accessibility barriers and share out best practices, particularly in areas of which commonly show the greatest barriers. Join us for our next session or visit the recordings from our previous workshops.
This workshop provides an introduction to accessibility through an overview of TBRs free, self-paced, Faculty Accessibility Course, designed by the TN eCampus team, and a review of why accessibility matters, who it matters for, and what it looks like in practice.
