We’ve been looking forward to this next series of webinars for a while now, so be sure to mark your calendars!
To kick things off, on September 15th we’re revealing and discussing research results from Oregon State University’s latest study on students and their use of closed captions with the project’s head researcher, Dr. Katie Linder.
And then on September 29th, we are extremely excited to be joined by Lainey Feingold, nationally recognized disability rights lawyer, and author of the upcoming book, Structured Negotiation: A Winning Alternative to Lawsuits, who will update us on digital accessibility cases from this past year.
Finally, we end the series on October 6th with some very insightful advice from Johns Hopkins University’s Electronic Information Technology (EIT) Accessibility Team on how to successfully develop an EIT policy at your university.
