Accessibility and Appeals: Methods For Inclusivity

The accessibility movement exists to ensure an equitable learning environment for all students, as does the need for multi-modal appeals to faculty, students, and practitioners to implement accessible practices. This talk will explore an interdisciplinary approach to coalition building centered on six methods for encouraging adoption of accessible practices: student success, social justice, Universal Design for Learning, broader community impact, legal, and business/ ROI. Attendees will hear how these approaches have been used and will be invited to consider how any number of them might be suited for their own teaching practice.
