The School of Media Studies would like you to join us for the Teaching Design and Web Accessibility Standards Webinar with Stephanie Rosen, University of Michigan.

This webinar will center on how accessibility challenges provide an opportunity to design better teaching plans and learning environments for all. Accessibility has both narrow definitions (within legal and web design discourses) and broad definitions, in line with the aims of open education, open access, and social justice. Stephanie will introduce concepts of accessibility and universal design, and will give participants the questions to ask and resources to implement to make their online instruction more effective for a variety of students.

Online faculty can join this webinar using Zoom.us and the plugin can be downloaded here. (compatible with Mac, PC, iOS, Android, Blackberry, and Linux) At the webinar time, please visit the meeting room.
