"Teaching Online and Accessibility"

Many of us are teaching remotely. How do we pursue accessibility and equitable teaching in an online environment? May 21, 2021 is Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD) and this #DLFteach will focus on accessibility practices when teaching online. Join Ray Pun, Rebecca Bayeck, and Amy E. Gay, members of the DLF Accessibility Working Group, and share your thoughts and advice! Ahead of the chat, the co-hosts have shared "20 Tips for Teaching an Accessible Online Course" to read as you're able.

This chat will be at 12:00 pm CST (10 am PT / 11 am MT / 1 pm ET) on May 21st, 2021. Questions will be tweeted from the @CLIRDLF handle. Join in and follow by tweeting with and looking at the #DLFteach hashtag. Questions? Contact the #DLFteach coordinator. All are welcome!
