Moving from reactive, legal-based accommodations to proactive accessible practice and resources requires a significant paradigm shift by the institution and all involved. Though many institutions are addressing accessibility, their success is often limited in terms of full-scale implementation that would result in systemic change and long-term capacity.

This session will engage participants around important issues facing campuses and individuals when making the critical—and rewarding—effort toward a fully accessible learning environment. When teaching and learning are universally designed, all instructors and learners benefit significantly, not just students with disabilities.

Specific efforts and outcomes of the Accessible Technology Initiative undertaken across and within 23 California State University campuses will be shared and implementation suggestions will be given. Participants will leave with a wealth of ideas, resources, and best practice models to inspire dialogue, organizational development, and sustainable practice at their home institutions.
