To accelerate the creation and delivery of accessibility-infused college curricula, Teach Access will be providing direct awards to full-time, part-time, adjunct faculty, or instructional staff at US-based institutions (including US Territories) of higher education (community colleges, two-year colleges/universities, and four-year universities). Awards of $1,000-$5,000 each will be given to faculty to develop modules, presentations, exercises or curriculum enhancements or changes that introduce the fundamental concepts and skills of accessible design and development into their existing courses.
The awards are intended to support ways for faculty to incorporate teaching about accessibility into their existing courses, rather than requesting the creation of a completely new course. To expand the impact of the awards, award recipients will be required to present their work at appropriate venues within their institutions as well as in the Teach Access Curriculum Repository. Awardees are also encouraged to present their innovative work at conferences, symposia, and workshops.
Teach Access is committed to equity and supporting a variety of faculty and institutions. Faculty from a Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI), Historically Black Colleges and University (HBCU), Community College (CC), and/or Tribal College and University (TCU) are highly encouraged to apply.
