Accessibility helps everyone

It is easy to regard accessibility as something to do when you have time and only to help a few individuals, but the design philosophy "Design for all" says the opposite.

This workshop goes through how you as a teacher can use "Design for everyone" to create an accessible course room in Canvas. With a few cornerstones, you can create a teaching environment that everyone can take part in without special solutions.

During the workshop, important concepts will be presented, accessibility tools will be introduced and you will gain practical experience in adapting content to be accessible. You and other teachers will discuss different accessibility adaptations in small groups and then all together.

We who present this workshop recommend that those who participate also take part in "Collegial network meeting: How do you make a Canvas course room available?"  afterwards, to discuss how the adaptations can be applied in real course rooms.

Presenters

Björn Ström, KTH E-learning.
