Make Virtual Learning Accessible: Strategies for a Successful Online Learning Environment
Virtual Georgia Assistive Technology in Education (GATE) 2021
Thursday, March 18, 2021
Carolyn Phillips, M.Ed, CPACC | Director, Tools for Life | Director of Services and Education, Center for Inclusive Design and Innovation
Liz Persaud | Program and Outreach Manager, Tools for Life Ben Satterfield, Ed.D | Research Associate, Tools for Life Tori Hughes | Outreach Specialist, Tools for Life
The team at the Center for Inclusive Design and Innovation (CIDI) and Tools for Life (TFL) will explore best practices and strategies for ensuring educational materials remain accessible, especially as we navigate obstacles to online learning. In this session, you will learn how to utilize your operating systems built in accessibility features that are already at your fingertips. Presenters will also share information about braille, e-text, captioning, audio description, assistive technology and other services offered by CIDI that can benefit students in the in-person or virtual educational environment. Ensuring students are still receiving accessible materials is our priority and we hope you join us to explore these solutions together!
