Webinar: Using Archaeological and Anthropological Skill Sets as Accessible Designers
Date: April 15, 2021
Using Archaeological and Anthropological Skill Sets as Accessible Designers
Practicing accessible design involves designing digital & physical spaces so that the greatest number of people can participate in multiple ways (e.g., sight, sound, touch) without later having to redesign the space to meet individual needs. Employers are increasingly recognizing the value of accessible design, as are institutions dedicated to learning and conservation. Therefore, creating accessible products and spaces is a growing area of interest. Presenters describe how their work incorporates and promotes accessibility, how they got into such work, why they are passionate about it, and recommendations for accelerating the adoption of accessibility in all workplace settings.
- Presenters: Rachael Penfil and Cheryl Fogle-Hatch, followed by Q&A
