A conclusion I draw from On Quality Education – The Web Standards Project is that students, college administrators, college instructors, and business people hiring web development personnel need to work together to promote change toward instruction in best practices and web standards.
The horror stories about college instructors still teaching table-based layout, frames, and nothing about CSS are too common. Students need to insist on better instruction and let their institutions know about it. Instructors need to insist on training and let their administrators know about it. Hiring managers need to require knowledge of standards and accessibility from all new employees.
I’m available for workshops
I have a wealth of experience in teacher training and teacher workshops. If you want help leading your university staff to better instruction in CSS, web standards, accessibility and best practices, I’d be very happy to help you achieve that goal.
