About

Are you struggling to meet web accessibility regulations? Or reshaping your digital provision to make teaching and learning more inclusive?

This live online accessibility clinic gives you the opportunity to ask questions about digital inclusion, provide feedback on areas that are problematic, and share your accessibility journey with others. 

During the clinic you'll:

  • Have an opportunity to share your experiences with and learn from like-minded people at different stages of developing accessible policy and practice
  • Gain feedback and support on any areas that may have been problematic
  • Get signposting to other resources and links to communities of practice where appropriate
  • Establish links with people working to overcome the same problems
  • Get the opportunity to shape the Jisc offer in this area

The sessions will be led by accessibility subject specialist Kellie Mote, with input from colleagues and recognised specialists.

Accessibility clinics will run from 12:30 to 13:30 on the first Wednesday of each month in the academic calendar. 

Who should attend

Anyone from a Jisc member organisation (UK further education colleges, specialist colleges or higher education institutions).
