17 May 2018 will see the sixth Global Accessibility Awareness Day (GAAD). “The purpose of GAAD is to get everyone talking, thinking and learning about digital (web, software, mobile, etc.) access/inclusion and people with different disabilities.”
A number of events (f2f and online) are being scheduled for the day, including Free webinars by Blackboard. These will inform our practice, so that it aligns with the University’s Policy on Inclusive Practice in Teaching and Learning.
