Abstract
Version 2.0 of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) was published in December 2008. WCAG 2.0 has a different language, a different structure and a different rationale to WCAG 1.0. All of these influence how to teach web accessibility. In this paper we present an innovative approach that we have followed in a web accessibility module that is taught at the UPM's School of Computing as part of the BEng degree in Computer Science. Our approach combined several teaching methods: traditional lectures, collaborative learning sessions, a short exercise on web site evaluation and, finally, a short project consisting of the development of an accessible web site. In the paper we describe the methods used and the results.
