How can we make our classrooms more accessible for all students? In this workshop, participants will be introduced to basic accessibility terminology and principles. We will work through various scenarios around how these issues arise in our classrooms and collaboratively generate strategies that create a culture of accessibility. By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to identify accessibility concerns in their teaching environments and have brainstormed methods to address these issues in their own contexts.
