Register now: 8th annual Access for All: Accessibility Symposium

Next Friday, some of Miami University’s most engaged, thoughtful minds will gather to discuss disability, accessibility, and the intersection of those two things with the technologies we use to facilitate instruction and work at Miami.

Bree Callahan

The 8th annual Access for All: Accessibility Symposium will provide information about universal design, accessible content for classroom use and for marketing materials, and current trends in assistive technology. Two tracks are available: technology and disability.

The event will take place Friday, October 27, 2023, from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in the Shriver Center. Breakfast and lunch will be provided.

The keynote speaker is Bree Callahan, the ADA/Section 504 Coordinator for the University of Washington. She has over 20 years of experience in higher education, 15 of that being in directorial roles with disability services offices across various universities. Callahan’s talk is called Accessibility is a Journey, Not a Destination.

In past years, this event has served as a place for like-minded professionals to convene on topics like universal design, the removal of learning barriers in the classroom, and why the way we structure the learning environment is important to so many people.

This event is free to anyone at Miami who is interested in learning more about ways to remove barriers to learning. It’s a full day of information, learning, and gifts, not to mention a free lunch where you can break bread with the most dedicated accessibility evangelists at Miami.
