    Learn how to make self-created K-12 and higher ed STEM curriculum materials - including documents, graphics, and videos - accessible to all learners. The four accessible design 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 covered in this session will include best practices for writing alt text and descriptions for technical images, charts, and graphics; creating closed captions and audio descriptions for video; the application of MathML in documents and websites to make mathematical and scientific notation accessible; and tools for making coding and basic computer science concepts accessible for all learners.

    Experience the latest technologies for making math accessible to diverse learners. Math is its own language, and the ability to perceive and process the information in math content can be a barrier that prevents some learners from pursuing careers in math and related STEM fields. In this session, you will explore tools that provide multiple representations of math text, including text to speech supports and sonification.
