How to Make your Course Materials ACCESSIBLE
Miss the last training? Join us for the September session!
Thursday, September 27, 2018 · Noon - 1 PM
Learn how to make your course materials accessible now and save time later! 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 in order to support access and inclusion of students with disabilities and universal design for all learners. In addition, departmental staff are also welcome and encouraged to attend to assist in creating accessible documents that are shared with students that may be housed on departmental websites.
Trainees should bring their laptop with Adobe Acrobat Pro or DC installed and at least one PDF document from their course materials to review. Direct instruction will be provided for 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 through the myUMBC event site.
