    1:00PM – 5:00PM ET on Wednesday, October 23, 2019

    Be inspired to learn accessibility skills to make your ATE project and center STEM curriculum materials, including documents, graphics, and videos, more usable for all learners. Led by experts from CAST (the Center for Applied Special Technology), this interactive workshop will focus on practical uses of Universal Design for Learning (UDL), a framework to improve and optimize teaching and learning for all people based on scientific insights into how humans learn. As UDL begins with a strong foundation in accessibility, the first half of the workshop will focus on the four accessibility principles of POUR (Perceivable, Operable, Understandable, Robust). POUR will be applied to STEM-related course content through a series of material makeover demonstrations. Common examples of educational materials will be first displayed in traditional formats, followed by POUR- aligned accessible versions.

    A Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) is meant to provide a standard format for vendors to report the extent to which a digital material or technology product meets accessibility standards. Despite recent updates meant to streamline the VPAT and make it easier to use, the VPAT remains a highly technical document. In this webinar, we will discuss the benefits and limitations of the VPAT and then walk you through an exemplar VPAT as we provide tips for what to look for in each section when interpreting a VPAT from a vendor.
