In this new workshop, musician and accessibility expert Christina Ebersohl will introduce the basic history of visual accessibility for music materials and show how to adapt teaching practices—online and in person—as well as policies for learners of all visual ability. Participants will explore adaptations during class and will be guided through resources to improve their advocacy and implementation of visual accessibility for the studio, classroom, or institution.
After participating in this workshop, you will:
- Gain a working knowledge of common resources developed for the visually impaired population and visually impaired musicians
- Understand several methods for creating or adapting courses, teaching practices, and institutional policies to support visual accessibility
- Understand fundamental strategies for advocating for visual accessibility in your institution
- Have a basic understanding of how to better equip physical facilities and faculty for working with the visually impaired population
