The Nordic branch of the International Association of Accessibility Professionals (IAAP Nordic) is joining forces with four leading universities in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland as well as accessibility specialists company Funka Nu AB to set up a network to promote and strengthen web
accessibility education throughout the Nordic countries.
During this two-year project, partners will analyse the status of web accessibility training in higher education and gather best practices for dissemination. A series of workshops and a conference will be organised to explore questions such as how web accessibility can be integrated better into existing curricula and how to best prepare students for the new market demands in the field.
The second workshop will be organised in Finland, at Laurea University of Applied Sciences, on 27 May 2019.
During the workshop, you will hear more about web accessibility training in Finland. Service design students will present the results of a web accessibility project and organise the workshop programme.
You are warmly welcome to Finland!
