Accessibility for Instructional Materials

Workshop by Elisabeth Dickie, SPRING BRENNAN, and TRACIE ORTIZ.

Does your course meet accessibility standards? Are the instructional materials you create (your videos and PowerPoint presentations, e.g.) ADA-compliant?

This workshop introduces the standards and best practices that instructors should follow when designing online materials or other digital content. Topics range from designing accessible text, graphics, and video/audio to how to implement Universal Design for Learning

Guest Speaker: Beth Ann Dickie, Director, Office of Educational Accessibility

The instructor’s role in meeting ODU students’ accessibility needs is discussed throughout. Activities include reformatting content in Blackboard for accessibility. Bring websites, Word docs, PPTs, videos, etc. to be workshopped, if you wish.
