That's great news! We'll be transforming the Learning Theater into the Accessibility Learning Theater (ALT) for one evening. Might be a useful acronym for marketing purposes?

Hi All, Here is what we decided at the meeting yesterday in regards to the Learning Theater at the Annual Conference. * 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 - We will have a demonstration of a screen reader and how it interacts with Web pages and some common problems that screen reader users encounter. This will probably be a video, but could be a live demonstration. (10 minutes) Round 3 - We will have a presentation on how campuses have had to deal with recent legal actions brought against them in regards to IT accessibility. (10 minutes) * Discussions with individual campuses (15 minutes) 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. Assignments: * Terry will organize the “IT Accessibility: What Campus Leaders Have to Say” video. He will also contact the University of Montana to see if they are interested in being one of the campus representatives * Sue will talk with CSU campus representatives to see if they are interested in participating as a campus representative. She will also work on getting a speaker for the presentation on how campuses have had to deal with recent legal actions. * Greg will contact Penn State and see if they would like to participate as one of the campus representatives. * Everyone will find videos of screen reader users that effectively demonstrate how people use screen readers and common problems they encounter. Please forward those videos back to the list. * Originally I had said I would organize the screen reader video demonstration portion, but if someone else is willing to do that I would be very grateful. * Greg is seeing if we can also reserve the Learning Theater for the next time slot since it appeared to still be open. If it is available we will repeat the agenda for the second hour. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks.

I forgot to include the times of the event. The Learning Theater is on Wednesday, October 16 from 4:40-5:30. We have a time slot that coincides with one of the receptions, most likely with food and drinks, just like last year (50 minutes). I am seeing if we can also use the time slot after this since it appeared to still be open. It would also coincide with the reception in the Exhibit Hall. Greg
It looks great, Greg. Thanks for pulling this together.
