Course offering at CHI 2017 (The ACM CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems, held by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) Special Interest Group on Computer-Human Interaction (SIGCHI).) Thanks to Gregg Vanderheiden for passing this along. He suggests it might be of interest to faculty who want to learn the basics of accessible user interface design.

Introduction to Interface Accessibility
Instructors: Jonathan Lazar, Jon Gunderson, G. Anthony Giannoumis, Weiqin Chen
Level: Intro - No prerequisite
Date: Wednesday 10th May 2017
Time: 14:30
This two-unit course provides an overview of interface accessibility for people with disabilities. The course material is divided into three sections: 1) technical foundations of accessibility, 2) user-centered design methods for accessibility in systems development, and 3) research methods for involving people with disabilities in accessibility-related research. There are no prerequisites for this course, but the assumption is that participants will have a basic understanding of HCI concepts and a basic understanding of web programming.
