Title: Efficiency in STEM: The intersection of Usability and Accessibility

Whether accessing STEM material is a necessity for a student to further their education or for them to revel in the delight of experiencing what the world has to offer, Accessibility continues to be at the forefront of the barriers for making this a reality.  Unfortunately, the ability of the student to actually utilize the “accessible” curriculum or material is just as important.  Human, Inclusive, barrier-free, and universal Design are all forms that are being incorporated into the overall Design process and are a necessity for making products as useable and accessible as possible.  This presentation will give an overview of the principles that are being integrated in Design schools around the world with the goal of making STEM usable and accessible to all students.
