The UA Office of Information Technology Emerging Technology and Accessibility team offers training on web accessibility guidelines; best practices for creating accessible documents, presentations, and spreadsheets; Universal Design for Learning; and other topics as needed. This does not replace accommodations an individual user may need and request, but a focus on accessibility can address common challenges with digital content to make it more usable and accessible for all users.


Emerging Technology and Accessibility regularly hosts workshops and webinars on accessibility-related topics. Workshop descriptions and learning outcomes can be found here: Technology Accessibility Workshop Descriptions (PDF).
