Registration is now open for the ACRL DOLS (Distance and Online Learning Section) Instruction Committee webinar “Carrying Accessibility Forward”. This free online event will take place Wednesday, December 1, starting at 1:00 PM CDT. See below for more information.

This past year certainly cast a spotlight on the importance of accessibility in online teaching and learning. Accessibility, however, is more than best practice checklists, Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), or legalities. Join us as our presenter, Katie Quirin Manwiller, Education Librarian and Assistant Professor at West Chester University, shares her knowledge of disability and accessibility, addressing what the future could hold for universal design for learning (UDL) and practical ways to implement UDL in online instruction.
