Community Confidential – Question and Answer session

In the spirit of problem-solving and knowledge sharing, December’s Accessibility Drop-in Clinic will be a session dedicated to generating answers for the questions asked by you lovely people in the community about your accessibility challenges.

So, whether it’s a particular question about accessible practice, a dilemma dealing with a third party product or a provocative question about leadership buy-in, we are going to try to get some discussion going and crowd source viable solutions.

The form is anonymised so that questions can be asked without highlighting an individual, their role or team, or their institution. Completing the Community Confidential Questions form is a chance to submit a question you didn't have time to ask in a previous clinic, or couldn't find an answer to online, or maybe you just didn't want to ask aloud.

Fire us a question, then come join us on the day to see if we can cultivate some answers from within the community and from experts in the field.

About the clinic

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 subject specialists Laura Hutton and 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.
