Ensuring Inclusion in Course Design with VR

Presented by:


RaLynn McGuire and Vanessa Garza, Learning Accessibility Specialists, University of Texas at San Antionio

Session Description:


Maximize your impact, with minimal time and effort! It’s challenging to maintain accessibility awareness across organizations, especially with turnover and constant change. Even if it isn’t your primary responsibility, you can help make a difference. See one model of a training and awareness program, which has proved successful and sustainable over multiple years. The tiered approach ensures new employees are introduced to relevant accessibility best practices, offers ongoing training opportunities for all employees, and helps everyone maintain accessibility awareness. Come share your own ideas and leave with specific steps to develop a training program, or share with administrators, at your own organization.
