UW System grant program targeting accessible technology has May 1 deadline

The UW System’s Learning Technology Development Council (LTDC) has received project funding to strategically address universal design and accessibility for persons with disabilities in relation to learning technology.

How might you approach a project to address accessibility of course materials, showcase your campus best practices, or create and incorporate guidelines and policies around accessible technology issues in higher education?

These funds can be used for small projects at individual campuses or partnering campuses with the goal of piloting accessibility or universal design strategies or technologies. Requests cannot exceed $5,000. Funding must be disbursed prior to June 30, 2015. Proposals are due by May 1, 2015, with applicants notified by May 15.
