Teaching Accessibility: A Student Perspective

Presenter: Brittnay Stahl

As a student who has worked in multiple roles in accessibility for the university, I dive into my personal experiences meeting accessibility standards for students. Traditionally, the university has taken a reactionary approach when dealing with accessibility issues and concerns. This creates frustrations from both faculty and students, as a lack of education and resources makes meeting needs near impossible. Exploring these issues, I offer solutions centered around universal design practices that will better serve both faculty and students in a progressive and inclusive design approach.
