    The National AEM Center invites you to participate in a free professional development opportunity to improve the accessibility of the materials your students use for learning. Many students with disabilities experience barriers to using curriculum materials due to physical, sensory, or learning disabilities. The outcome of the offered professional development is that you will improve your students’ access to the same curriculum materials as their classmates. And, we’re certain that you’ll discover that accessibility improves the quality of your curriculum for all learners. For this activity, we’re targeting educators in their first, second, or third year of teaching; however, we welcome all interested participants. Small groups from the same school or district are encouraged.

    When you deliver a presentation at a conference or at a meeting, you want everyone in attendance to understand your message. However, many presenters unintentionally erect barriers that make that goal difficult for some attendees. In this webinar, you will learn about best practices for making your presentations accessible to a wider audience that includes not only people with disabilities, but also people who call into a presentation and do not have access to the visuals, and those sitting in the back row of a large room. 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. Finally, you will learn how to deliver your presentation in a way that allows everyone to participate and engage.
