Call for Participation

This workshop will bring together accessibility/industry professionals and computing educators to discuss the needs and goals of integrating accessibility into the computing curriculum. The workshop will have two objectives, 1) developing a consensus on learning objectives for accessibility and 2) sharing and developing materials for use in future classes. The outcomes of this workshop are to develop a white paper outlining the different learning objectives for teaching accessibility and to create a repository of materials to share different ways to integrate accessibility into their courses.

The workshop will be open for all who would like to attend, including those who do not plan to attend the ASSETS Conference. We will have two levels of participation in the workshop, one for those who would like to share their experience or views on teaching accessibility and one for those who would like to teach accessibility in the future or be involved in the discussion of the learning goals. For all participants, we ask that they fill out the brief survey on the workshop website to provide their interests, time zones, and accommodations, if any. In addition, for those who would like to share their experiences, we ask for a submission of the module, project description, or syllabus of the course that integrates accessibility that can be shared in the repository. If an artifact is submitted, at least one of the presenters must be able to attend the workshop.
