  • Virtual Event
  • Event Host: UO Online & TEP
  • Event Type: Reading and discussion group
  • Teaching Pillar: Inclusive

Are all students able to access the learning that happens in our classes? What would it mean to, as the Accessibility Education Center says, be “informed by and responsive to the diverse characteristics and experiences of students with disabilities and variations of ability”?  

The Teaching Towards Access Reading Group invites you to explore questions around designing for access in a friendly, collegial group. We will read and discuss articles and book excerpts, and discussions will provide an opportunity to approach issues around disability and access with curiosity and care, and as co-learners. All UO community members welcome. Feel free to join us every week, or to just drop in for selected conversations. Our first meeting will discuss the new Practitioner Guide: Accessibility, which centers UO student voices.
