In the Classroom and Beyond

Every year, Accessible Technologies conducts a number of one-time classroom lectures for graduate and upper-level undergraduate students. In addition to lectures, Teaching and Outreach has worked with a variety of outreach programs that demonstrate assistive technologies for people with disabilities in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Professional Development

Through Networked Learning Initiatives, we also offer professional development for faculty, staff and graduate students on accessibility in the classroom. Participants will gain knowledge of tools and techniques for creating accessible instructional materials/activities, as well as the practical experience necessary to design and create accessible and inclusive learning environments. For details about specific times for upcoming professional development opportunities, view our workshop schedule.
