I wonder if you would be willing to promote some online accessibility training that Wichita State University is offering this fall? We have two, fully online, half-credit badge classes available, and because of scholarships, the cost to take one of them will be $0 for most people. I thought this might be good for the listserv?

Here are the particulars:

Wichita State’s accessibility badges are appropriate for both faculty and staff of all kinds. The two classes now available are:

* Accessibility’s Legal Landscape<http://badges.wichita.edu/node/420>
* Accessibility, Accommodations, and UDL<http://badges.wichita.edu/node/418>
The classes are set up to be self-paced, and people can enroll in them whenever they want during the semester (up to two weeks before the close of fall term), but he scholarship opportunity expires on September 14th. Here is the scholarship information:

* Scholarships<http://badges.wichita.edu/node/103>

These badge classes do not require textbooks or any other paid materials, and even the more theory-driven parts are designed to have practical use in people’s lives. People who successfully complete them (85% overall points received, and assessments can be re-done until the person is satisfied with their score) receives an official WSU digital credential through the Credly service and a transcripted half-credit of undergraduate credit.

If you think this would be useful to the AHEAD folks or others, I’d love to have you help spread the word,
