Accessibility 101: Principles of Inclusive Design (DEI)

Ann Arbor MI 03-18-2020 03-18-2020

Accessible Education is the process of designing courses and developing a teaching style to meet the needs of people from a variety of backgrounds, abilities and learning styles. When you design your course to be accessible, you anticipate that people will have diverse needs, and so ensure that everyone in your class will be able to learn successfully. The objective of this workshop is to introduce participants to the basics of accessibility and to provide guidelines, as well as practical tips and strategies to make courses, materials, and teaching more accessible to all students. This session is recommended for anyone interested in accessible education, and more broadly for anyone interested in understanding how to design materials that are accessible to diverse audiences. It is therefore suitable for both faculty and staff. This workshop is eligible for 1 CPE credit. Facilitators: Frédérique Laubépin, Patty Bradley, Sazia Zaman, Wes Cummins
