  Title:  21-Wb - Accessibility Design Slam
  Fee: $15.00   Time: 9:00 AM - 11:50 AM Wednesday, Oct. 23   Room: E
 
Description:  Accessibility is a top concern for educators, yet there is a lack of attention in our field’s research base and publications. Given this gap, Reiber and Estes (2017, p. 16) argue "time has come to bring the best ideas from the instructional technology field to the design challenge of meeting all levels of accessibility." As a response to this call, join us to design an Action Plan for your accessibility-related research or resource project.
