Technology Accessibility: A Curriculum Enhancement Training Session for CUNY Faculty

October 29, 2018 @ 2:30 pm - 5:00 pm

This half-day curriculum enhancement workshop is intended for CUNY faculty in computer science, programming, media studies, digital design, and other areas where principles of universal design are relevant. Facilitated by CUNY’s Web Accessibility Fellow in the Office of Academic Affairs, the session will cover basic concepts of accessibility as pertains to design and web development; guidance for incorporating related modules into course syllabi; and the value of accessible design skills for students seeking careers in the technology industry. The training session will aim to:

  • Raise awareness around disability, assistive technologies, digital accessibility and the various tools and resources that are available to support accessible design and development work.

  • Incorporate modules, exercises, and assignments into course syllabi in order to provide students with technical skills for developing digital content that incorporates principles of universal design and is compliant with WCAG.

  • Highlight the existing/future job market for trained designers, and developers with working knowledge of accessibility standards.
