This panel, originally scheduled to occur at SIGCSE 2020, provided practical advice on what and how to teach accessibility in a variety of settings. It is important to learn about the diverse technology consumers: what their abilities are and what access infrastructures they use every day. Teaching about computer technologies that people with various disabilities can use and be productive with prepares students to design accessible technology when they graduate. The panelists have extensive experience in teaching accessibility and provided advice to others about how to teach accessibility in their own courses.
