Digital Accessibility in the Workplace - Cancelled

Bring your office to the forefront of accessibility with this unique workshop!

Assistive technologies have come a long way in the last thirty years. Hearing aids, note taking devices, reading machines, scanners, and other devices have greatly enhanced accessibility for differently-abled students and employees, but there remain significant obstacles to equal access that these devices cannot easily overcome, but that may change very soon.

Digital Accessibility in the Workplace is a 15-hour workshop that provides an overview of assistive technologies, guidance on incorporating assistive technologies into workplace training and operations, and information about powerful artificial intelligence tools that greatly enhance existing assistive technologies for the well-being of employees.

This workshop includes a mix of lecture, discussion, and projects designed to provide participants with a broad array of resources to better serve differently-abled employees.

Workshop meetings will be conducted online via Zoom. Assignments and resources will be provided on Canvas. Reserve your space today!

Student Learning Outcomes:

  1. Identify existing assistive technologies and their applications, and rethink task management.
  2. Design a training opportunity that is accessible and effective, using UDL design parameters.
  3. Create tasks that utilize different technologies to employ and engage employees.
