    When you deliver a presentation at a conference or at a meeting, you want everyone in attendance to understand your message.

You will learn techniques for making your slides more accessible using a number of popular presentation tools such as Microsoft PowerPoint, Apple’s Keynote and Google Slides, as well as how to design an accessible handout that provides value even after the presentation is over.

    Be inspired to learn skills to make self-created K-12 and higher ed STEM curriculum materials, including documents, graphics, and videos, accessible to all learners. The four principles of POUR will be applied to STEM-related course content through a series of material makeover demonstrations. Common examples of materials created by K-12 and higher ed STEM faculty will be first displayed in traditional formats, followed by POUR-aligned accessible versions. Skills will include the application of MathML in documents and websites to make mathematical and scientific notation accessible; best practices for writing alt text and descriptions for technical images, charts, and graphics; and creating closed captions and audio descriptions for video. In consideration of the limited time, the goal is not to train but rather to inspire faculty to learn one of the three skills over the summer of 2019 using the AEM Center’s free resources and technical assistance services.
