“A Clear Standard for Access to Instruction”


Date: Thursday, August 29
Time: 2:00–3:30 p.m.
Location: PSU 313

An audio conference presented by Association on Higher Education And Disability (AHEAD)

On July 23, 2013, the Department of Justice announced a settlement agreement with Louisiana Tech University regarding inaccessible course materials. This is the latest interpretation of college campuses’ obligations under the ADA. As a result of this decision, the Association on Higher Education and Disability (AHEAD) is offering an audio conference to review this decision and provide some ideas for best practice.

This audio conference will help us begin to evaluate the accessibility of our online and electronic instruction and services, and help us think about how we might resolve barriers. Please visit the AHEAD website for more information.

AHEAD has finalized the panelists for the program:

  • Anne E. Langford, Attorney, Disability Rights Section, Civil Rights Division, U.S. Department of Justice
  • Judith Risch, Attorney, Office for Civil Rights, U.S. Department of Education
  • Jo Anne Simon, Attorney, Adjunct Professor of Law, Fordham University & Private Practice Attorney

Facilitated by L. Scott Lissner, President of the AHEAD & ADA Coordinator, The Ohio State University

Co-Sponsors: Disability Resource Center & Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning
