Digital Accessibility – it’s the smart thing to do, it’s the right thing to do, and for many students, it can be the difference between success and failure!
The Center for Academic Innovation is pleased to announce that we are sponsoring another round of the successful Accessibility Challenge from last summer. GEER Funding is again available to support faculty who participate in this opportunity to make their digital course materials easier to use for everyone.
Join us for a two week challenge March 21 – April 4, 2022 and learn how just a few easy tweaks can make a huge difference for students.
For this challenge, you will be able to choose from a variety of different accessibility activities that will make you eligible for the stipend – or, you can work with Heather Mariger to create your own plan. The challenge generally takes around four – six hours to complete.
GEER grant funds allow us to provide a $200.00 stipend to all faculty who complete the Accessibility Challenge.
Once you have completed your challenge activities, we will ask you to answer a couple of quick questions and write a short paragraph (or two) about your experience and advice for others. See what last summer’s participants have to say about their experiences with the Challenge.
And that’s it – complete the challenge, receive the stipend, and earn a nifty Accessibility Challenge Badge.
