Topic Details

Topic:
Best Practices for the Provision of Accessible Instructional Materials (AIM): Comply with the Law and Elevate the Quality of Your Teaching
Description:

Do you use textbooks, videos, PDFs, or other instructional materials in your classes? Do you teach online or use TRACS for course management? If so, have you considered accessibility? Join a panel of enthusiastic experts from our campus who can help you to ensure that your courses are accessible and legally compliant for students with disabilities as well as elevate the quality of instruction and inclusion for all students. This experiential and interactive workshop will focus on how the Office of Disability Services (ODS), Office of Distance Education and Learning (ODEL), Learning Applications Solutions (LAS), and the Library can serve as a resource to help faculty in planning and implementing course improvements. The workshop includes a one-hour presentation, followed by Q&A. Panelists and consultants will be available to advise individual faculty after the session. This workshop will be the first in a series on how AIM can enhance quality teaching.
