October 12, 2017

Faculty are invited to attend a November 14, 2017 bootcamp on teaching inclusive design.

This event can be attended virtually or onsite at the Accessing Higher Ground Conference in Westin Westminster, Colorado. The workshop is geared toward faculty who teach design or technology courses. There is no charge to attend. Seating is limited for both the onsite and virtual event. As it says in the Word version of this invitation:

Come learn about and discuss trends we are noticing with new-hires at tech companies like Google, Microsoft, Oath, Adobe, and Facebook. Learn about examples and techniques you can use in your own classrooms (programming, design, testing, etc.) to best prepare your students to create inclusive experiences that not only increase their employability after graduation, but also motivate them to create innovative breakthroughs in making technology work better for everyone.
