Communities of Practice

Two participants discuss concepts and strategy together.

With supplement funding, DO-IT engages stakeholders within Communities of Practice (CoPs). CoPs share perspectives and expertise and identify practices that promote the participation of people with disabilities in postsecondary education. The Accessible IT CoP was developed as a result of this CBI.

Accessible IT CoP

This CoP is populated with disability services and IT professionals interested in increasing the accessibility of IT in postsecondary education. Participants

  • exchange information, ideas, and suggestions for future collaboration
  • gain and share knowledge and help identify issues related to IT accessibility in higher education
  • recruit others to participate in the CoP
  • provide content for DO-IT’s searchable Knowledge Base

You and your colleagues can join the CoP by sending the following information to doit@uw.edu
