Spring 2023 WAC Guest Speaker: Dr. allison harper hitt

Tuesday, February 28 from 12:40 - 2:00p.m. on Zoom.

"Prioritizing Accessibility: Engaging in Inclusive Writing Instruction"

In higher education, there is a tendency to try to diagnose disabled students and default to accommodations rather than crafting more accessible pedagogical environments. Meeting students’ needs requires foregrounding accessibility in physical and digital spaces, curricular and programmatic design, and interactions with each other. This presentation will address how to design writing classrooms and curricula that are truly accessible, rather than simply accommodating of difference.

Dr. Hitt is the author of Rhetorics of Overcoming: Rewriting Narratives of Disability and Accessibility in Writing Studies. You can find out about her work on her website
