Online event, How Can We Minimize Implicit Bias in Our Academic Communities? (CIRTLCast Series - Part 3 of 4)

There is a lot of information (and misinformation) out there about what institutions need to do to ensure that their online courses are accessible to all students, including those with disabilities. It can be overwhelming, especially when the stakes seem so high and the path forward is as clear as mud. Let's take a look at the most common myths about accessibility to debunk them as well as strategize how best to address them.
This workshop will provide a deeper understanding of how each of us presents ourselves to those around us and valuable information that will allow us to make specific choices to ensure that we have the best possible interactions and exchanges.
