CVC Accessibility Webinar Series: Student Experience & Universal Design for Learning
November 10, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm PST
Presenter: Jessica Lopez – Vice President, Associated Student Government, Coastline College
Description: Jessica Lopez is a disability advocate and full-time student at Coastline College triple-majoring in Business, Economics, and Communication. Born without hands and feet, Jessica’s lived experience as a disabled student informs her advocacy for inclusive and accessible education and workforces. She is Vice President of Coastline Associated Student Government, and advocates for students locally and statewide. Jessica does consultancy work on disability, reaching over 800 educators on accessible education, and has organized student action and met with legislators to lead the way for expanded disability inclusion. She works to interrupt the narratives we are often led to believe about people with disabilities in order to make the world more equitable.
In this session, Jessica will offer a student’s perspective on accessibility. She will discuss the importance of Universal Design for Learning and how faculty can understand the variety of individual skills and learning styles or preferences, age, gender, sexual orientation, culture, abilities, and disabilities when selecting appropriate content and strategies for the delivery of online instruction.
These sessions will include captioning via Zoom’s Live Transcript tool. If you require additional accommodations, please contact email@example.com as soon as possible with details.
