Question

Can you help me understand this English question?

As we have discussed in class, there are many ways to make our community more inclusive and accessible. The hope of this assignment is to open your eyes to the ways that our community can be accessible and inaccessible for people with disabilities, and the ways that we can be proactive in ensuring that accessibility features are present within our communities. (Remember: Accessibility is not only for those with visible disabilities but also for invisible disabilities such as heart conditions, anxiety disorders, etc.)

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

Students will compare and contrast locations that are accessible and inaccessible.
Students will apply their knowledge of accessibility and universal design to assess accessibility in their own field of study or career path.
Students will apply concepts discussed in the course to articulate what needs to happen to make their field a more inclusive field.

ASSIGNMENT CONTENT REQUIREMENTS:

For this assignment you will watch two short videos on accessibility:

Ed Roberts Campus: Building Community (6:18)
https://youtu.be/7THtXFm_954 (Links to an external site.)
The Ed Roberts Campus (2:21)
https://youtu.be/4Vh51HYJA-0 (Links to an external site.)
After, you will thoroughly respond to the following questions.

After watching the Ed Roberts Campus videos, paraphrase what you learned. Explain the features of the campus that surprised you. Who was Ed Roberts and what values did he encompass? What is important about this campus?
Think about your career path, the nature of the work, the environment you may work in and the people you might work with. In what ways is access a feature of that environment? In what ways is access not valued or provided?
What are some solutions to any lack of access in your projected career field, tools of your trade, work environments, and opportunities for full inclusion and contribution?
Compare and contrast two real places that showcase poor accessibility and excellent accessibility. You may use online images or go out into your community and environments. Describe the features of both places and how they are accessible or inaccessible. Elaborate on the features that make the environment accessible to some and potentially inaccessible to others. Include a photo of each example.
