Teach Access Faculty Fellowship


A collaboration between Teach Access and partner higher education institutions to further advocacy, support, and work for teaching accessibility. 


The Teach Access Faculty Fellowship Program engages faculty and staff from across disciplines and institutions to learn about accessibility and inclusiveness through a structured curriculum, workshops, and mentorship from experts in academia and industry. Throughout the program, participants are introduced to and equipped with concepts, tools, and resources for teaching accessibility in their courses. Fellows are also supported in the creation of course materials and activities and in the adoption of accessible pedagogical practices. The fellowship experience is intended to help participants situate content knowledge, resource sharing, problem-solving, and discipline-specific solutions into purposeful communities of action.

  • Learn from leading experts in accessibility and inclusion
  • Develop and implement innovative approaches to teaching accessibility in your course(s)
  • Collaborate with other educators to further advocacy, support, and work for teaching accessibility
  • Receive mentorship and guidance from professionals in academia and industry
