For Further Study

If you are interested in thinking more about how to design educational opportunities in an accessible way, you may find this short, nine minute, video lecture helpful. It was originally created for a short course in Universal Design and Universal Design for Learning at Wichita State University, so there are a few passing references to that class in this video. Just ignore them!:

To access captions on the video, please click the “cc” button on the screen.

If you find that accessibility is a little bit overwhelming and you’d like to back up a moment and ensure you understand the foundational concepts that underpin accessibility, this video on the “Accessibility Family of Terms” might be just what you need.  Like the video about designing educational opportunities above, this video was created to support a short course at Wichita State, so there are a few passing references to that course in this video too. Again, just ignore them!
