Creating Accessible Teaching and Research Documents in STEM

December 1, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

How can you make your teaching and research documents accessible to neurodiverse individuals and individuals with disabilities? Through this two-part workshop, participants will learn to recognize features that might make their teaching and research materials inaccessible, to present content in a variety of formats, and to use specific tools like LaTeX to improve accessibility of their materials. Special attention will be given to teaching and research materials with complex mathematical characters and equations, which have historically presented unique challenges to accessibility. By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the diversity of abilities of learners and researchers and identify challenges to accessibility based on the content and format of technical documents
  • Evaluate the accessibility level of teaching and research materials and apply tools and programs to increase their accessibility
