Everyone who uses digital materials in teaching needs to know how to make materials accessible. This task is critical to meet federal laws, state laws, and local policies, but it can sometimes be difficult to understand the nuances of what is required. In this 90-minute hands-on session, we will distill information to help professors understand the key places where they should be thinking about accessibility and then show them the best methods for implementing good design to meet accessibility guidelines. Come prepared with a sandbox course that contains at least one example of each of the types of multimedia, images, and documents (PowerPoints, word docs, pdfs) that you typically use in teaching. A handout with resources will be provided to help with this process going forward.
Reasonable accommodations, including Sign Language Interpreters, can be provided upon request with 3 days advance notice.
