See below for information on the Teach Access Fellowship Program. As part of the program, Fellows will be creating curricular materials to teach accessibility in their courses. We hope that this Fellowship might be of interest to some of you and that you might consider openly licensing the materials created as part of it.
Teach Access Fellowship Program
Are you an educator or academic support staff working in a college or university in the U.S. and/or Puerto Rico? Then you might be interested in applying for the 2024 cohort of the Teach Access Fellowship Program. This program consists of year-long professional development and support for learning about accessibility, teaching it to others, and strategizing for embedding it into the curriculum.
Starting this spring, fellows will be supported in understanding how accessibility informs their disciplines and in planning on how to teach it to their students. Throughout the summer, fellows will work on creating at least two curricular materials to teach accessibility in their courses. Finally, next fall, fellows will be supported in teaching accessibility to their students and in strategizing how to incorporate accessibility principles into the curriculum.
Selected fellows that successfully complete the program requirements will receive a $4,000 stipend. Interested professionals should complete the program application by Thursday, November 30, 2023. Please visit the program’s web page for more information about eligibility criteria and program requirements.
