Leveling up on a11y during COVID-19


A group of IT professionals from across the University met online weekly last summer for a deep Zoom-dive into web accessibility. We covered the knowledge base for IAAP (International Association of Accessibility Professionals) certification. We'll provide highlights on what that means and how we did it, followed by quick thoughts on what was surprising, confusing, or amusing. We'll invite questions, comments, and, especially, thoughts on next steps.
