PEAT Talks: Expanding Accessibility Awareness in Higher Ed
Thursday, January 18, 2018
2:00 P.M. to 3:00 P.M. EST
Partnership on Employment & Accessible Technology (PEAT)
Technology companies dedicated to accessibility often face the challenge of preparing designers, engineers and researchers to think and build inclusively. Similarly, academic programs in design, engineering and HCI are seeking ways to better prepare students to address the needs of diverse populations.
In this webinar, Oath's Senior Director of Accessible Media Larry Goldberg and Facebook's Director of Accessibility Jeff Wieland will discuss how Teach Access is working with industry, academia, and advocacy groups to expand the quality and quantity of undergraduate programs that teach the fundamentals of accessibility. Participants will learn why the accessibility teams at Facebook and Yahoo (now Oath) created Teach Access, what its key goals/objectives are, and what initiatives they are currently working on.
PEAT Talks is a monthly virtual speaker series to showcase organizations and individuals whose work is advancing accessible technology in the workplace. Held the third Thursday of every month at 2:00 pm Eastern Time, these events are designed to be energetic and interactive discussions highlighting a spectrum of exciting work.
