Note this recording from the folks at QM.

An Inside Look at Accessibility

Thank you for attending last week’s webinar on the new book Guide to Digital Accessibility: Policies, Practices and Professional Development. During the webinar, the book’s editors, Drs. Rae Mancilla and Barbara A. Frey discussed the process for assembling the book, the reasons for its creation and the methods they used to compile and organize its chapters.

Additionally, the editors shared some of the major takeaways they uncovered during the editing process. These included guidance on institutional policy, best practices for course design, useful digital accessibility tools, professional development strategies, and the importance of having staff dedicated solely to digital accessibility.

The following resources related to the webinar are now available to access:

Your Compendium for Best Practices on Digital Accessibility

Guide to Digital Accessibility

The Guide to Digital Accessibility is available now and features the perspectives of nearly two dozen educators from the QM community. Full of insights derived directly from the experiences of these professionals, the book offers practical solutions to common issues and situations spanning the world of digital education.

“Looking for a single resource to inform your accessibility work? Guide to Digital Accessibility: Policies, Practices and Professional Development is it! This go-to collection of writings shares insights and practices on a wide range of accessibility topics, from helpful primers on the subject to guidance for course design and professional development efforts. I found the guide to be a valuable reference book that I will return to time and again. A must-have resource!”
