Hello ATHEN Members!

For a complete listing of webinars across all topic areas, visit the main 2016-17 AHEAD Webinars page:

The First AHEAD Tech Webinar is on September 27th:
E-Learning Accessibility: What Does an Instructor Need to Know?
September 27; 3:00-4:30 Eastern Time
Presenters: Sheryl Burgstahler, DO-IT University of Washington

Description: Some online learning programs have faced legal challenges because of the inaccessibility of their courses to individuals with disabilities. But, what does it mean for a course to be “accessible”? What can be learned from legal challenges regarding e-learning accessibility. What are relevant laws? What are some strategies for making online courses compliant with legal mandates specifically, but also, more generally, welcoming to, accessible to and usable by all students, including those with disabilities, who wish to engage in online learning offerings,? This presentation will answer these questions, focusing on how increasing faculty knowledge can reduce the need for accommodations to be provided to individual students with disabilities.

Remember - Cost for ATHEN Members to attend this and any of the other AHEAD Webinar sessions is the same as AHEAD members. When registering for the webinar, choose the option for “I qualify for AHEAD member rates” to get your discount!

We hope you take advantage of this benefit!
