Accessible Pedagogy Workshop

Are you interested in offering students accessibility in the classroom beyond the ADA-required minimum? Have you wondered how to approach the topic of learning needs with students who might not yet have the language to request accommodations? Do you want to have more tools at your disposal to enrich your learning environments?

If any of the above reflect your interest in accessible pedagogy, come to Wells C607 on January 16 at 4:00 pm, where the HIVES Research Workshop and Speaker Series will be holding a workshop on accessible pedagogy. Some of the topics addressed will include: accessible website design, creating accessible .pdf documents, generating image descriptions, accessibility language in syllabi, and resources available at Michigan State University.

If you’re a professor who teaches hundreds of students per class and want to make sure each has the best chance to access class materials or a graduate student interested in incorporating access into your teaching, this workshop will have information and material to help.

If you have not yet done so, please fill out this Entrance Questionnaire, which will help us to gauge the efficacy of this workshop. Please also fill out this RSVP Form so that we know how many people to expect.
