Title: Building an Accessible Digital Institution
Speaker: Brian Kelly [BK], Innovation Advocate, Cetis and Andy Heath [AH], Consultant
Date and time: 09.15-12.45 on Wednesday 18th June 2014
Venue: University of Bolton
A digital institution should ensure that it supports the needs of students with disabilities. But how should we go about building an accessible digital institution? This session will review the strengths and weaknesses of internationally agreed approaches such as WAI’s WCAG guidelines, explore how the BS 8878 Web Accessibility Code of Practice may address limitations of the WAI approach and see how BS 8878 may be applied in a learning context.
In addition to such policy considerations the session will explore emerging models of accessibility and developing architectures and technical standards.
