This year AccessComputing is participating in the STEM for All Video Showcase. The Showcase, which runs from May 13-20 highlights work being done by federally-funded programs to transform STEM education. AccessComputing's video looks at Teaching Accessibility to Broaden Participation. People with disabilities are underrepresented in the STEM workforce. One way to improve this is for computer science educators to include more information about people with disabilities and access technologies in their courses. We call this "teaching accessibility."
Check out our video, join the conversation, cast your vote, and share our video with your network: Teaching Accessibility to Broaden Participation.
