PEAT Talks: Expanding Accessibility Awareness in Higher Ed

Thursday, January 18, 2018 from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM

Sponsored by: Partnership on Employment & Accessible Technology

Technology companies dedicated to accessibility often face the challenge of preparing designers, engineers and researchers to think and build inclusively. Similarly, academic programs in design, engineering and HCI are seeking ways to better prepare students to address the needs of diverse populations.

In this webinar, Oath's Senior Director of Accessible Media Larry Goldberg and Facebook's Director of Accessibility Jeff Wieland will discuss how Teach Access is working with industry, academia, and advocacy groups to expand the quality and quantity of undergraduate programs that teach the fundamentals of accessibility. Participants will learn why the accessibility teams at Facebook and Yahoo (now Oath) created Teach Access, what its key goals/objectives are, and what initiatives they are currently working on.


Supported by a grant from The HSC Foundation. Developed and maintained by SchoolTalk, Inc. and Inclusion Research Institute in collaboration with DC Partners in Transition.
