AEM Center Events

The AEM Center at CAST offers free technical assistance webinars and presentations at national convenings and conferences, with the goal of increasing the availability and use of accessible educational materials and technologies for learners with disabilities across the lifespan.

New to AEM Center events?
The AEM Center uses Zoom, which supports a number of keyboard shortcuts for accessibility. If this is your first time using Zoom, please learn more about joining a Zoom webinar and joining a Zoom meeting.

AEMing for Access

In this 30-minute series, the AEM center will bring educators together to talk about specific topics related to AEM. How are you approaching accessibility in your learning environment? Need some new ideas? Stuck on a challenge? Eager to share with others? Participants will leave with usable, bite-size information. Think of it like office hours with a focus on accessibility, accessible educational materials, accessible and assistive technologies!

Join us every other Thursday at 1pm ET. Our next topic is CITES: AT Myths/Facts Graphics on Thursday, April 18. We look forward to seeing you there!

Meet CAST’s team of friendly Technical Assistance Specialists at the AEM Café!

Every first Thursday of the month from 1:00–2:00 pm PT / 4:00–5:00 pm ET, we’ll focus on a topic, share some little-known resources from the AEM Center, and the rest is up to you. Show up, chat, ask questions, or just listen to the conversation. The AEM Café is open and ready to welcome you.

Join us for the next conversation at the AEM Café on Thursday, April 4th! Our blend of the month (topic) will be Myths and Facts About AT: Exploring the New AT Guidance and Resources. We look forward to seeing you there!
