Date 10/1/2021

Educators create. Presentations, worksheets, exams, practice problems - educators create any number of resources to help their learners. As more and more of our materials are shared in the classroom as well as digitally through online resources, it is important to be aware of learners with physical challenges.

This workshop will provide basic information and vocabulary of how to add key accessibility features to your documents and presentations. There are many tools available to check for 508 Compliance and to ensure ALL of your learners have access to the materials you create. Resources, checklists and online tools provided. This session will demonstrate 508 Compliance features using Microsoft ® products on the Windows operating system.

OTAN workshops may be requested, customized, and scheduled by qualifying adult education agencies for their staff as targeted professional development.

OTAN workshops may be conducted as a "hands-on”, where participants are asked to provide their own devices, as “presentations” where a product or ideas are introduced, or as a discussion where all are encouraged to participate in a conversation around a specific idea or topic.

The desired outcome of every OTAN workshop is that participants will have a working understanding of the application or topics discussed and modeled.
