ACCESS-ed Products

The ACCESS-ed Project staff are engaged in the collection and development of a wide variety of materials to support the use of UD principles in higher education. Given the wealth of information that has been developed in recent years, a considerable amount of time is devoted to searching and indexing existing materials. In cases where we have identified gaps in the knowledge base, we have enaged in the development of measurement tools, training materials, and other practical resources.

Information about the following types of products can be found in the Tools & Resources and the Virtual Campus sections of the web site:

  • AUDITs (instruments for measuring the accessiblity and usability of a specific campus environment or function)
  • Posterettes and Tip Sheets (easy to use practical advice on selected topics)
  • Protocols and Strategies (how-to procedures)
  • Video Clips (short videos that illustrate good and bad examples of accessibility (or attempts at accessibility), called "Accessibility Gems and Bloopers", and links to videos created by others, including information about disabilities and assistive technology)
  • Surveys (surveys for measuring stakeholder knowledge and perspectives on UDE and accessibility)

Disability is part of the natural diversity of human life. It touches all of us, whether through our own individual experience or that of a family member, neighbor, friend or colleague. As such, we all have a role in—and benefit to gain from—advancing equality for people with disabilities in all sectors of society, including the workplace.
