Cavalier Conference on Writing and Literature

Access For, Access To:
Reimagining Education for All

The leading English educator conference: April 14, 2023

Explore critical issues of access and accessibility affecting education today. Collaborate with colleagues near and far on research-based solutions for overcoming barriers and transforming the ways we teach.

Concerns over accessibility have long held a prominent place in our conversations about teaching, even before the COVID-19 pandemic pushed us to consider them more urgently.

How do our teaching methods privilege some students and disadvantage others? How can we make those methods more equitable? What qualities allow online instruction to live up to its potential for expanded accessibility?

Questions like these get to the heart of our conference theme: access for those who need it and access to the knowledge and materials they need.
