CS Table 2/13/18: CS Accessibility

Computer Science Accessibility is an incredibly important issue in the CS community today. Even our own introductory courses have evolved to reach as many audiences as possible. However, there are still many obstacles faced when creating a truly accessible curriculum. This week we'll be discussing computer science for the visually impaired.


Computer science table (CS Table) is a weekly meeting of Grinnell College community members (students, faculty, staff, etc.) interested in discussing topics related to computing and computer science. CS Table meets Tuesdays from 12:00–12:45pm in JRC 224A (inside the Marketplace). Contact the CS faculty for the weekly reading. Students on meal plans, faculty, and staff are expected to cover the cost of their meals. Visitors to the College and students not on meal plans can charge their meals to the department (sign in at the Marketplace front desk).
