Accessibility and Inclusive Design: Part I
August 20, 2019 at 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM
|Location:||422 Dunton Tower|
Facilitators: Kim Loenhart (EDC), Renata Chiaradia (EDC)
Accessibility is a key value, a strategic goal and good teaching practice at Carleton. Faculty and instructors have a critical role to play in creating equitable access to education for learners of all abilities. Come and let us show you what that looks like! Through a combination of mini-lectures, video, technical demonstrations, hands-on activities, and small group activities, we’ll guide you through the basics of accessibility and inclusive design.
Some of the key topics you will learn about in this 3 hour session:
- Understanding disability and accessibility
- Reviewing AODA requirements
- Creating accessible Microsoft Word documents and making your syllabus/assignments accessible
- Using Accessibility checkers and resolving accessibility issues
- Supporting students by linking them to key campus resources
Join us as we explore these topics and learn strategies to reduce barriers in your classroom!
To prepare for this session:
- Bring your own laptop, as we have a limited number to share.
- Know the basics of MS Office (or similar tools). If you have limited experience with MS Word, you may want to check out this training video at lynda.com.
- Download the newest version of MS Office, including MS Word, for free from the Carleton University ITS website.
Bring an electronic version of your course materials (e.g. course syllabus) to work on together.
