I think Kathy is right in suggesting the "authoring practices" if your 
audience is web developer already familiar with WAI-ARIA concept and 
looking for coding examples.  But, it might be useful to suggest they have 
a basic understanding (if they don't already) by starting with the 
Overview, FAQ, and Primer, before diving into the authoring (also known as 
implementation) best practices. 

WAI-ARIA Overview

i.      FAQ
ii.     WAI-ARIA 1.0  [use this as a reference]
iii.    Primer [introduces developers to the use of WAI-ARIA for 
addressing the accessibility of dynamic Web content for people with 
iv.     Authoring Practices  [developer implementation examples]
v.      User Agent Implementation  [for browser developers]
vi.     Roadmap [describes the Model-View-Controller architecture]
vii.    CR Implementation [contains "specifies concrete implementation 
procedures in user agents, which varies according to platform and requires 
more detailed specification than was suitable for the main spec."]

What is even more effective, is to customize this information for your 
specific web sites, your design guides and widget sets, your tools, and 
your development process and organizations/colleges.  But, knowing a 
little about universities in general, it is probably less controlled and 
less prescribed than a typical company or government agency, so good luck 
getting them all to follow any guidance.

Hi Lucia -

The WAI-ARIA 1.0 Authoring Practices (
http://www.w3.org/TR/wai-aria-practices/) is a good place to start.

 We are creating a new  informational web site for developers on our 
campus was  hoping to find a good  place to point them at for examples of 
all the ARIA  tags and how to  code them. Does anyone have such a  place?
thanks Lucy
