Accessible Instructional Materials Workshop
CETL runs the Accessible Instructional Materials (AIM) Workshop several times a semester for all faculty as a part of the TEACH program. To complete the workshop, (1) instructors attend a live webinar and then (2) submit a deliverable, namely a Syllabus with Heading Styles.
Please check our latest workshops and register for the Accessible Instructional Materials Workshop if available.
An important component of designing a course, either online, hybrid, or in-person, is to ensure that the instructional materials are accessible for students with disabilities. In this workshop, we will demonstrate several practices instructors can implement to ensure accessibility of their course materials.
By the end of this workshop you will have accomplished the following objectives:
- Explain the importance of accessible materials.
- Structure text documents with Heading Styles.
- Add a text-based description to an image (alt text).
- Assess closed captioning quality in online video.
