Dear Colleagues:

Can any of you tell me if your campus is including curriculum on
accessibility and UD in tech and design courses - for example, CSCI,
webdesign, etc.?

I'm doing a presentation at AccessU next week on:

*Teaching Accessibility and Universal Design in Higher Education
Curriculum: Benefits, Approaches and Resources *

I'd like to talk about what other campuses are doing in this area. If your
campus is addressing this, I'd be interested in hearing if it's systematic
- a campus or department policy - or simply an effort of certain faculty.

Also, CU-Boulder recently received (re)funding for a grant on *Promoting
the Integration of Universal Design into University Curricula (UDUC)*. If
any of you would like to be on the email list for this project, let me
know. I'm also looking for faculty and accessibility specialists who are in
interested in collaborating on this project. Let me know if you or any of
your colleagues are interested. Activities of the group would include
providing input on what might be the best resources to provide to encourage
inclusion of a11y and UD in tech/design curriculum.

Thanks in advance,

Howard Kramer
