Accessibility in Education (Blackboard Blog Series)

Over the last few months I’ve been blogging with a colleague of mine about the impact of accessibility and inclusive thinking in education. I fundamentally believe that we’re on the cusp of some great changes in education. The emergence of competency based education and the increasing pressures being driven by actions within the Department of Justice here in the United States are forcing educational institutions to rethink how they are approaching accessibility. I wanted to collect the list of posts in my corporate series to share in once place.
