10/22/18 & 12/3/18: "Instructional Content"

Time: 11am - 12pm

Location: IDRE Portal - 5628 Math Sciences, UCLA

16% of UCLA undergraduate students have a disability. Help empower this growing population through accessible curriculum design and web content. In this hour long active learning session, you will learn the challenges for people with disabilities, understand the impact of assistive technology and screenreading software to “read text out loud”, and receive hands-on experience building an accessible document. We will also discuss some of the principals of Universal Design for Learning and how they might be applied in your course and research documents.


10/29/18 & 12/10/18: "Documentation"

Time: 11am - 12pm

Location: IDRE Portal - 5628 Math Sciences, UCLA

People who are blind, low-vision or have dyslexia rely on assistive technologies and screenreading software to “read text out loud” to them. However, many documents created are completely inaccessible or frustrating for screenreader users. Public documents posted on websites and emailed to listservs should be accessible to people who use screenreaders. During this hour-long active learning session, you will have the opportunity to get hands-on training in making accessible PDF and Word documents.

 

11/5/18 & 12/17/18: "Web"

Time: 11am - 12pm

Location: IDRE Portal - 5628 Math Sciences, UCLA

Navigating websites can be difficult and sometimes impossible for people with disabilities. Learn accessible design and content management tools to make it easier for people with disabilities to engage with your web content. During the hour-long active learning session, you will have the opportunity to get hands-on experience building accessible webpages.

 

11/19/18: "Basics"

Time: 11am - 12pm

Location: IDRE Portal - 5628 Math Sciences, UCLA

People who are blind, low-vision or have dyslexia rely on assistive technologies and screenreading software to “read text out loud” to them. However, many documents and websites created are completely inaccessible or just frustrating for screenreader users. Learn accessible design and content management tools to make it easier for people with disabilities to engage with your website content and documents. During the hour long active learning session, you will learn the impact of accessible websites and documents, simple methods how to build in accessibility in current content, and have an opportunity for hands-on experience building accessible webpages and documents.

*Please note, if you have already attended the Documentation and Web training courses, then it is not recommended to attend this Basics course.



It is recommended to bring a laptop or you may request a laptop during registration to have one provided for you.
