In support of Marquette’s electronic accessibility initiative, the Center for Teaching and Learning now offers one-on-one consultation and workshops design specifically to address accessibility of course content in the electronic classroom.
One-on-one consultation is offered to Marquette employees who have specific questions or need assistance converting course content that is used electronically (e.g. D2L, websites).
Four new workshops are available:
- Making your Course Materials Accessible to Students with Disabilities. This workshop is an overview of accessibility, why it is important to Marquette’s mission and a discussion about the changes required to make electronic course content accessible.
- MS Office Products Accessibility Overview. This workshop is a hands-on experience where each person will use MS functionality to edit a sample syllabus and PowerPoint slide so that it is accessible.
- Creating Accessible Images, Video, and Website links. This workshop focuses on adding accessible content to D2L.
- Creating and Converting .pdf documents to accessible document. This workshop is designed for the employees wanting to use .pdf files in D2L.
If you would like set-up a consultation or request the design of a workshop that is specific to your department, please contact Sheila Bernhardt, (414)288-5969.
Bernhardt is available all day on Tuesdays and Wednesdays and from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Thursdays.
