Helping Students Understand Why & How to Embrace Accessibility within Their Own Text Design

Feedback form is now closed.
As we apply accessibility within our own course design, we need to be transparent with our students about our design efforts: why and how we make things accessible. Even better, if we can communicate to students why and how to embrace accessibility within their own text design, we can broaden the impact of this important piece of equitable instruction. This discussion will focus on sharing methods and strategies to help students understand the principles of accessibility, why they should check for accessibility, and how to actually design accessible materials.

After participating in this session, attendees will be able to:
  • Identify core principles of accessibility as applied to online courses
  • Recognize the impact of empowering students to apply accessibility to their own work
  • Gain new strategies for helping students apply accessibility measures
  • Learn about accessibility resources for online course design
