Introduction to Digital Accessibility for Instructors and TAs

Feb 13, 2019

Learn what it means for course elements to be "digital accessible" and ways to create an inclusive environment.

Webinar Description

As the description on the Center for Educational Innovation (CEI) website states:

A typical course has a number of digital elements, including documents, readings, course websites, videos and slides. Digital accessibility refers to the ability of these elements to be easily navigated and understood by a wide range of students, including those who have visual, auditory, motor or cognitive disabilities. In this workshop, participants will learn the basics of what it means for course elements to be "digital accessible" and ways to proactively create an inclusive digital environment for their students.

Presenters: Kris Gorman and Janelle Nivens
