Hi All, The EDUCAUSE Annual Conference is just a few weeks away now. Here is the agenda I have for the Learning Theater. It is on Wednesday, October 16 from 4:40PM - 6:30PM in the Exhibit Hall. We will be repeating the agenda twice during this time slot. I've received the floor plan, although there might be a slight tweak to it with a few of the chairs and tables being removed. I have attached the image of the floor plan and it is described at the end of this message. ACTION ITEM - If there are other institutions willing to talk in the "Discussions with individual campuses" time, please let me know. As of right now I only have three confirmed campuses. This would mean being available for others to come and ask you how you have dealt with accessibility on your campus. If you have any other suggestions for the agenda, please let me know. Thanks. Greg -- Greg Kraus University IT Accessibility Coordinator NC State University 919.513.4087 AGENDA * Welcome - Greg Kraus (5 minutes) * Lightning Rounds (30 minutes total) Round 1 - Terry Thompson will introduce and give a brief background on the newly edited “IT Accessibility: What Campus Leaders Have to Say” video, then play the video (10 minutes) Round 2 - Greg Kraus will have a demonstration of assistive technologies and how they interact with Web pages and some common problems that users encounter. These will be videos and not live demonstrations. (10 minutes) Round 3 - Cheryl Pruitt will provide an overview of accessibility cases in general and the CSU system wide response. (10 minutes) * Discussions with individual campuses (15 minutes) Cheryl Pruitt will introduce this section. After the lightning rounds, we will have multiple campus representatives around the periphery of the theater who will be available for Q&A and general discussion on how they have had to deal with accessibility on their campuses. Attendees will be invited to mix and mingle and have informal discussions with the campus representatives. Confirmed Campuses: Penn State University (Christian Vinten-Johansen) North Carolina State University (Greg Kraus) University of Montana (Marlene Zentz and Robert Squires) * Floor Plan 50' by 50' with a stage up front 4 to 5 rows of seats for a total of 40 or 50 seated positions 8 tables that can seat 4 for a total of 32 seats at tables (I think) 6 tables which you can stand at, which can accomodate 3 people each for a total of 18 people standing at tables There will also be personal listening devices that people can use to get the direct feed from the microphone. These are to help people hear over any other noise in the room. There will not be enough listening devices for the entire space. I have not been given a number for how many total listening devices there will be. ********** Participation and subscription information for this EDUCAUSE Constituent Group discussion list can be found at
