Creating a Culture of Accessibility

Fri, 14-Jan-2022 - 9:00 AM to 11:00 AM
Register at: https://bit.ly/011422Accessibility
Virtual: MS Teams - or - In-Person: TBA

Ensuring course content is accessible to all learners is essential to student success! When students cannot access content, they miss out – and we, as a community of learners, also miss out on the connections and contributions students might have made.

During this webinar, we will discuss the importance of creating accessible content, review accessibility standards, be introduced to tools used to help create accessible content and better understand how to approach the adoption of publisher content while ensuring accessibility.
