How do you make your university's website accessible? Why does it even matter?
John Slatin AccessU is a two-day intensive training conference for web developers and designers, IT managers, policy developers, usability professionals, media specialists, and more! World-renowned accessibility experts will present two full days of classes – many of them hands-on – to help you understand the need for inclusive information technology design, improve your skills, and build upon your knowledge with helpful techniques. You can choose from four professional tracks to suit your goals and responsibilities: Policy & Administration; Design & Usability; Web Development; and Content.
Optional post-conference classes will be held on Thursday, May 17, 2012. Kel Smith, a longtime speaker, author and practitioner on digital accessibility, will present the Keynote session on Tuesday, May 15. Additional events for the conference include the AccessU Meetup, an Accessible Night Out, and even an unofficial happy hour!
