Accessibility Teachers’ Coffee Hour – 20th May 2021
Teaching Accessibility at the University of Southampton and Teach Access are hosting a Global Accessibility Awareness (GAAD) event for teachers of accessibility. We hope you will join us in celebrating the role of teaching in building accessibility awareness, knowledge, skills, and action.
Thursday, May 20, 2021 from 15:30 – 16:30 BST (10:30 – 11:30 am EST)
Our Accessibility Teachers’ Coffee Hour is a chance for educators from around the world to gather virtually and discuss the unique and rewarding work of teaching accessibility.
The hour-long event will start with a welcome and introduction, followed by breakout groups focused on special interest topics:
- Challenges of teaching accessibility
- Values and approaches
- Strategies for student engagement
- Teaching and learning tasks and activities
Following the breakout groups we will reconvene for a short report back from groups, and end with a discussion of ways to advance the field of accessibility education.
Event hosts will include members of the Teaching Accessibility research team and accessibility teachers from Teach Access university partners. See the Teach Access website for more details and to register.
