Lunch & Learn
Join us each month as we host a conversation with an academic leader. Our expert guest speakers will provide valuable insight and tips on creating accessible learning experiences.
Our focus for the upcoming year will be on Ontario’s proposed education standards.
AODA Proposed PSE Standards: Digital Learning and Technology
Thursday, October 26, 2023 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM EDT
Join us on October 26, 2023 at 1:00 PM EDT for a free virtual chat with Ontario’s Postsecondary Education Standards Development Committee members for Barrier Area 4: Digital Learning & Technology.
During this event, we will be joined by the Digital Learning & Technology committee members – Sambhavi Chandrashekar, Anne Pottier, and Jennifer Curry Jahnke.
In an accessible digital learning environment, students with disabilities must be able to access and use technology, produce and consume content, and engage in learning independently and effectively. The context of the recommendations in this section spans the postsecondary digital learning environment, where learning takes place online, remotely, blended and face-to-face using digital technology and digital content.
They will provide an overview of the barrier area and the proposed recommendations in the following six key areas:
- accessible technology
- accessibility plan
- accessible procurement support
- accessibility training/practice
- accessible and inclusive pedagogy/andragogy
- accessible content
Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and engage in a discussion about the proposed recommendations.
This event is open to anyone interested in accessibility and inclusion in postsecondary education.
