Description

Education agencies and institutions across K-12 and higher ed are legally obligated to provide accessible educational materials and accessible technologies (AEM) to learners who need them. In this interactive session, you’ll engage with seven Quality Indicators for including accessibility in the procurement of educational materials and technologies. You’ll also practice using a self-assessment tool that you can bring back to your colleagues for monitoring continuous improvement in the provision of accessible materials and technologies.
