For us the question has a funding component since IT is 100% charged back. What is the focus of your position? Technical? Development? Instructional? Digital materials? Procurement? All of the above? Mike Cyr UMaine ******************** We’re in the process of establishing a new Digital Accessibility Specialist position, and we’re having discussions about which department and to whom it should report to. Should it be in Special Learning Services Office, Library, or IT? Where do you have that position in your organization, and are there any challenges or disadvantages to having it in a particular area?
