The Online Teaching Resources team is hosting its last workshop for the semester focusing on digital accessibility, and with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and CHamoru cultural perspectives in mind.
What: Accessible Syllabi, Slides, Sheets, and Screens with Dr. Merissa Bunton
When: Nov. 14 to 27, 2022
How: Email Dr. Bunton: firstname.lastname@example.org
In this asynchronous workshop, participants read and view tutorials to assist them in understanding Universal Design for Learning (UDL) as it applies to digital accessibility, and to create and update their course materials to meet ADA standards. As participants explore accessibility tools, they will engage in robust discussion with colleagues, reflecting on their choices from the lens of the CHamoru cultural concept of inafa’ maolek - the concept of restoring harmony or order - and other cultural values.
At the completion of the Moodle Accessibility Workshop, participants will learn the importance of Universal Design for Learning:
From a CHamoru cultural perspective
How UDL informs Digital Accessibility
From the ADA
Participants will also learn how to use tools available to all at UOG to:
Update existing resources for ADA compliance
Create new resources that are ADA-compliant
Have fun with creative play!
