Teach Access Curriculum Development Awards

Apr 30, 2020

Awards of $5,000 are available to faculty or instructional staff to accelerate the creation and delivery of accessibility-infused curricula.

As stated on the Teach Access website:

To accelerate the creation and delivery of accessibility-infused college curricula, Teach Access will be providing direct awards to full-time, part-time, adjunct faculty, or instructional staff at US-based institutions of higher education (community colleges or four-year universities). Awards of $5,000 each will be given to faculty to develop modules, presentations, exercises or curriculum enhancements or changes that introduce the fundamental concepts and skills of accessible design and development into their existing courses.

The awards are intended to foster innovative ways of incorporating the teaching of accessible technology into existing courses, rather than triggering development of completely new courses. To expand the impact of the awards, award recipients will be required to present their work at appropriate venues within their institutions as well as publicly on the Teach Access website. Awardees are also encouraged to present their innovative work at conferences, symposia, and workshops…

The Call for Proposals began April 27 and submissions are due June 1, 2020 at 5pm PT.  Note: this is only open to faculty who have not taught about accessibility previously.
