Description

It's been said that the virtual and digital world has replaced the physical world as the locus for discrimination and barriers (Inside Higher Ed, November 2016). But did you know that just six core skills can reduce barriers to digital content by about 80%? The six core skills--applicable across platforms and media--are easy to learn; all they need is YOU to learn them and incorporate them into your workflows. This engaging, interactive workshop will give you the tools you need to create more accessible digital resources across all your platforms and media. We also give some suggestions for how to advocate for accessibility best practices on your team. Make it your personal goal to open your content to the largest possible audience, starting with this workshop. BYOD Session.
