Online Teaching and Accessibility in a Pandemic

Speaker: Audrey Blumeneau

About the presentation

The COVID-19 Pandemic changed our lives, jobs, and routines in so many ways. In the world of education, teachers moved mountains to pivot from in-classroom instruction to fully online practically overnight. Over the past couple of years, faculty have become quite adept and creative with providing lectures and assessments to an online environment. One of the overarching challenges (among many) was/is ensuring that all content complies with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. I will discuss some of the issues and challenges and how we are working to ensure that all students are provided equal access to learning content.
