how to make your course materials accessible now and save time later!
The objective of this hands-on training will focus on providing faculty
with the basic skills to assess if their course materials are accessible
and to learn how to easily make them accessible to support access and
inclusion of students with disabilities and universal design for all
learners. Improving access is a campus-wide responsibility and this is how you can be a part of the movement.
Trainees should bring their laptop with Adobe Acrobat Pro or DC installed (available free at https://wiki.umbc.edu/display/faq/Software ) and at least one PDF document from their course materials. Direct instruction will be provided for both creation of an accessible document and remediation of inaccessible content using common authoring tools including Microsoft and Adobe products.
For questions or to RSVP, contact Andrew Drummond, SDS Assistive Technology Specialist at firstname.lastname@example.org or reserve a space through the myUMBC event site. Space is limited.
