IAAP: "Accessible Document Design in Higher Education"

Where:

Shriver Center 316

Speakers: 

Karen McCall, Accessible Document Design Consultant and Trainer, Karlen Communications

Session Description:

This webinar will take those of us who create and advocate for more accessible documents to the next level. As a beginner in the field of accessible document design, this webinar will show you what is possible as you learn the basics. For document authors who are at the intermediate or advanced level of accessible document design, this webinar will guide you through the advanced tools in Word and PowerPoint that will assist faculty, students and staff create more accessible documents.

The ecosystem of accessible content can provide a foundation and leadership role for higher education as we move toward the goal of inclusive education. Goal 4.5 of the UN Sustainable Development Goals is inclusive education yet each iteration of primary, secondary or tertiary education defines inclusive education differently.

Can the accessibility of digital content provide the framework for moving inclusive education forward by 2030? This webinar looks at the existing tools as well as new tools available to document authors while framing higher education as the leader in this endeavor.

IAAP: "Digital Accessibility Law for Developers, Designers, All of Us!"

Where:

Shriver Center 316

Speakers: 

Lainey Feingold, Law Office of Lainey Feingold

Session Description:

There's no denying it - the law has become a significant driver of accessibility in the United States, and increasingly around the globe. Because of this, everyone whose work touches accessibility needs to be familiar with what is happening in the courts, with legal settlements, and with laws and government regulations impacting the accessibility space. This webinar will present up-to-date legal developments, the legal foundation for our work in accessibility, and best practices from legal advocacy. Digital accessibility is a civil right: let's learn to talk about the law as a motivator for good, not as something to fear.

The AccessMU Center is partnering with the Miller Center for Student Disability Services to offer Assistive Technology (AT) Open Labs for all students. This is an opportunity to learn more about AT provided by Miami, including Livescribe Echo Pens, Read&Write by Text Help, Bookshare, etc.
All Assistive Technology Open Labs will be held in Shriver Center 316D.
