Details

In our online and face-to-face learning environments, we post documents and presentations for our students to view. When we post these documents, we should ask ourselves the following questions: Are our course materials accessible to ALL possible students who may access my course? Is the structure of our documents inclusive to a wide range of students with varying abilities?

In this hands-on session, you will create an accessible and inclusive Word document and PowerPoint presentation. Strategies for designing accessible and inclusive documents and presentations will also be discussed.
