Digital materials like Microsoft Word docs, PowerPoint presentations, PDFs, and videos are commonly used in face-to-face and online classes alike. But what many don’t realize is these documents may be difficult to access for students with disabilities. For students to learn in your course, the first step is ensuring access to content. In this workshop, we will go over best practices, tools, and strategies to ensure that your audience can gather information regardless of device, software, or disability. For this hands-on session, please bring your own device to try creating accessible materials, as well as examples of images, documents (Word and/or PDF!), or videos from your own courses.
