  • Webinar: Accommodate or Redesign?

    Webinars

    November 21, 2018

    Fundamentally, UDL is good pedagogical practice. Inclusive design evokes empathy for every learner and demands responsiveness. If you identify or learn about a barrier, you can explore options to reduce or even remove that barrier to make your learning experience more inclusive. This workshop will guide participants in the use of student personas to adopt a student’s frame of reference, identify potential accessibility barriers, and discuss ways to address these barriers through the fundamentals of UDL. This facilitated activity is designed around realistic scenarios and student personas. These student personas encourage empathy for student experiences and emphasize the barriers experienced by students with a variety of needs. This session will contrast when barriers may be approached through accommodations or redesigns. With each scenario, the questions for participants are asked: “Could the required materials present barriers to your Persona? Could those barriers be addressed through a “redesign”? What barriers remain and could they be addressed through accommodations?”

Accessibility is not just for web designers and programmers. Each and every day, every document, every way you can easily create accessible documents.
