In observance of the 25th anniversary of the Americans with
Disabilities Act, today, a number of tech companies, along with
partners from academia and advocacy have joined in the launch of
Teaching Accessibility. As the name suggests, a key goal is to tackle
the inclusion of accessibility and universal design principles into
the teaching of technology courses in higher education. From a
tech-industry perspective, Teaching Accessibility will develop
standard language for inclusion in job descriptions for IT roles, and
not just roles for those working in accessibility full-time.

The Washington Post published this article today on the launch
Teaching Accessibility's website has more info, including info on how
to get involved www.teachingaccessibility.com.
