Disability Practice in the Spotlight
Students at UTS Explain Digital Accessibility
There are few resources so valuable as lived experience. Imagine if you could capture that for your own organisation and use that experience to improve those of others in future – that’s exactly what staff at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) did.
The Students Explain Digital Accessibility project, which ran in 2020 and was part of the UTS LX.lab (Learner Experience Lab), saw a group of UTS students share their learning experiences to educate teachers on how to ensure their classes were accessible and inclusive for all.
