I don't know if you also want to include helpful free webinars from outside sources but this looks like it will be a good one.

That sounds like a great idea -- I'll work on figuring out the best way to get in touch with the Deans and organize something like that.

Hi all,

At the last meeting I think it was Deb that suggested coming up with a webinar calendar. I was hoping to get to that earlier in the year, but I failed. I'm looking for some folks to help A) suggest topics and B) host/help schedule/prepare a webinar.

I've reached out to a guy at WebAIM to do a demo of the NCDAE GOALS Benchmark and Planning tool<http://www.ncdae.org/goals/planningtool.php>. This is a free tool for teams (like accessibility workgroups) to determine where they're at in terms of bringing web accessibility into their practice. I'm a big fan of their list of indicators<http://www.ncdae.org/goals/indicators.php> -- it's a great way to get a sense of what your institution should be doing to address web accessibility. So, that's one webinar that I want to get scheduled ASAP.

Ward and I are doing a presentation next week on procurement, we could probably do another version of that for another webinar.

Then... ?

I think a "policy show and tell" would be sort of cool... Some chance for a few schools to share what they've developed and answer questions about how and why they developed the policy as they did. Anyone willing to volunteer for this?

One thing we talked about at the last meeting was the challenge of getting this info to deans. Maybe we could do a webinar specifically for them? Would someone higher up want to run with that - I'm not sure they'll listen to a lowly program admin. Joe? Mark? and maybe someone from the colleges?

That would get us through the end of this year... but maybe in Spring we can develop a calendar for next year and get something published nice and far in advance.
