Teaching Accessibility in Computing Workshop

Date(s) - 07/10/2020
2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

It is essential for societal inclusion that our increasingly ubiquitous technologies are accessible to a wide range of users. For students who are learning about software development it is important that they are able to explore the different societal and technical aspects of creating accessible software.

In this online workshop we will explore the state of accessibility teaching in Scotland through discussion of our collective experiences. This will be based around three questions:

  1. How is accessibility currently taught?
  2. How should or could it be done?
  3. How can we work together to get there?

We would welcome you to the workshop if you are teaching accessibility topics, you are interested in accessibility or you just want to find out a bit more about it.

Organisers: Dr Michael Crabb (University of Dundee), Dr Benjamin Gorman (University of Bournemouth), Dr Rachel Menzies (University of Dundee), Dr Garreth Tigwell (Rochester Institute of Technology, NY, USA).

If you would like any more information or to discuss any element of the workshop further, contact Dr Rachel Menzies.

You can register for this event here.

A Zoom link will be send to attendees ahead of time.
