Designing digital learning spaces with accessibility in mind can benefit all learners. As the number of online learning spaces for both online and on ground courses continues to grow, so does the importance of web accessibility. Presenters will help participants understand the need for accessibility, learn about current guidelines and best practices, and introduce methods for improving equal access to digital learning spaces across campus.

This session considers accessibility broadly but will demonstrate practices developed for visual and auditory impairments. Participants will have the opportunity to practice accessible web design standards including font, format, color, links, images, tables, and audio/video standards in various learning spaces, so please bring a laptop!
