Over 45 Sessions Including Lectures & Hands-on Labs

During the four days of this year's Accessing Higher Ground (AHG) conference, over 45 sessions, including hands-on labs and lectures, will be offered on the availability and benefits of assistive technology and accessible media in the university and college setting. The pre-conference will include two days of hands on workshops and lecture sessions. All events will take place at the University of Colorado–Boulder Campus.

Special Sessions

EASI Track, AHEAD, WebAim, & DAISY/RFB&D Sessions

On Thursday, EASI will offer Applications for Learners with Low Vision and Learning Disabilities and on Friday, Applications for Learners with Mobility Impairments.
