The Office of the Pro Vice Chancellor Access and Learning Support ran workshops for staff in 2003. These workshops enabled staff who are web authors to develop first level awareness of accessibility problems faced by people with vision and other impairments when they try to access web materials. Some resources from these workshops are available from Web accessibility.
Vision Australia provides fact sheets, brochures, papers, education materials, links to other sites and training courses.
