Accessibility Conference at the University of Nottingham

This week we asked Dr Christopher Ward, Digital Accessibility Consultant at the University of Nottingham, to provide an overview of the upcoming accessibility conference.

Learning Technology at the University of Nottingham has organised a conference centred around the broad topic of digital accessibility, which will take place on Thursday, June 29th, 2023.

This conference aims to provide an opportunity for individuals engaged in this field to come together and share their experiences. At Nottingham, we are actively involved in our own digital accessibility program, and we understand that achieving tangible and long-lasting change can be challenging. We acknowledge that digital accessibility poses a significant hurdle for the sector, and every institution is on a unique journey in this regard. Whether you are just starting out or have already made significant progress, this event will offer valuable insights.

Conference Themes

Sessions will cover a wide range of topics, including:

  • Achieving Lasting Change
  • Embedding Best Practice
  • An Inclusive Curriculum

We are excited about this exceptional gathering, as practitioners from various sectors will engage in a comprehensive conversation about the obstacles associated with achieving sustainable change. The level of interest we have received thus far has been astounding, and we look forward to welcoming you!

Attendance at the event is free of charge. We have curated an impressive program that addresses three conference themes, featuring over 40 sessions from 29 different institutions and organisations. We expect up to 275 delegates, making this one of the largest digital accessibility events to date.


Registration is now open, and you can book your tickets if you want to attend in person. To stay updated on the conference’s speakers, sessions, and all other planned activities, please see our conference website.
