Why does Accessible Education matter? Listen to student and faculty perspectives.
- Hear students with disabilities discuss why it matters to them that instructors care about and integrate accessibility principles.
- Listen to Dr. Ameil Joseph describe why Accessible Education is our responsibility as educators, not “additional work”.
- Hear Dr. Catherine Anderson define Accessible Education as taking responsibility for facilitating conditions whereby all students who want to learn in her class are able to do so.
- In addition to these inclusion goals, which she shares, Dr. Philippa Carter explains that a proactive approach to accessibility tends to reduce the time she spends responding to individual requests for modifications. It also invites her to extend flexibility and support to all students rather than only those registered with Student Accessibility Services.
