Roughly 1 out of 10 students in our classrooms has some form of disability,
and now that a growing number of technical and professional communication
(TPC) courses and programs are offered online, scholars need to
adequately address accessibility in online course design. Calling on the field
to ‘‘pay attention’’ to this issue, the authors report the results of a national
survey of online writing instructors and use Selfe’s landmark essay as a way
to theoretically frame the results. They conclude by offering strategies for
TPC instructors to design more accessible online courses.
