Proposal Abstract

We will pick up from last year’s speed session about Basic Online Accessibility. Little did we know then, but campus courses around the world would soon move online due to COVID-19. Now the topic of online accessibility is more important than ever. Last year we created the TRU Accessibility Quick Guide as a resource to help you to build your files so they are accessible and to check if they are accessible. This year we will take this TRU Quick Guide further and through a variety of scenarios we will teach you questions to ask to identify accessibility issues, and we will demonstrate how to make your files more accessible. Often, we exclude students without even knowing it. Would you know? In this session, we will go Beyond Exclusion and towards inclusion. Come to our session to learn to spot and fix most accessibility issues. You will not see a document the same way again. Looking forward to seeing your questions and comments in the discussion.

Statement

Teaching without Walls really means teaching online. All courses moved online due to COVID-19, so online accessibility is more important than ever.

The stream Beyond Exclusion is most relevant to this session as all students are included in the world of online education when accessibility features are considered.
