Accessibility Considerations in the Higher Education Classroom 

Presented by:


Jessica Cannon - Associate Professor of History, University of Central Missouri

Session Description:

In this interactive session, participants will gain an awareness of current legal decisions outlining accessibility expectations from the Justice Department and explore common issues faced by students with documented disabilities as well as students who do not seek formal documentation. We will work collaboratively through several case study examples, and participants will leave with resources to facilitate adapting content and course design in their own settings.
