Accessibility in open education resources (OER) generally brings to mind the technical, nitty-gritty details concerning digital documents and learning objects. The minutiae of alt tags, contrasting colors, and navigational headings only partially encompass the sphere of accessibility in OER. The very foundations of OER are built on an ethical framework of accessibility that is necessary to achieve equity and inclusion in higher education. Accessibility includes issues of design, discovery, language, organization, diversity of content, and more. Accessibility should not be considered an accommodation, but rather a way to improve education for all. Join Professor & Librarian Stephanie Wiegand for a discussion concerning accessibility and OER. If you are ready to learn more or considering reviewing, adopting, adapting, or creating an OER, this discussion is for you.
