Digital technologies have transformed daily life. Yet capacity for producing accessible digital tools and services has not kept pace with demand, exacerbating digital exclusion for disabled people and older people.
To address this, ‘Teaching Accessibility in the Digital Skill Set’ is a 4 year research study funded by UK Research and Innovation that seeks to build understanding of accessibility pedagogy, so that teachers of accessibility, trainers and peer-educators in academia and industry have empirical research and evidence-based resources to call upon when developing their teaching.
The research involves 4 work packages, beginning in May 2019 and running until April 2023. We will be posting more about our research and activities soon. Subscribe for updates or contact us directly with questions and comments.
