Online Workshop: Accessibility For Instructional Design

Online Workshop: Accessibility For Instructional Design
Join us for a half-day online workshop! We’ve put together a comprehensive, powerful and memorable event, where attendees walk away with immediately-applicable tips and techniques to make their instructional media accessible.

Although many professional instructional designers and presenters now create their sites with an awareness of technical design issues, they are still experiencing difficulties with emerging accessibility standards and inadequate rapid e-learning authoring tools. 
Many online courses continue to be designed based on assumptions that don’t address the specific needs of people with disabilities and difficulties and thus fail to deliver the promise of distance learning to all learners. 

Our half-day course includes a thorough review of every pertinent standards that apply to accessible elearning, including other policies which point to WCAG 2.0 Level A and AA compliance (such as ADA the U.S. Section 508 "refresh" and Ontario’s AODA). We’ll cover everything from storyboarding to testing.

Not only will you leave with ideas you can use right away, you may also gain a whole new attitude towards how technology can improve lives. By the end of the day you will not only be aware of why accessibility and standards affect everyone: you’ll be equipped with a thorough understanding of the best strategies to approach what needs to be done and how. 

Our course leader, David Berman, is a consultant on common look and feel implementation for accessible online experiences, and has worked on training in this topic for the Canada School of Public Service, Carleton University, and the Internet Institute. He has completed online accessibility projects for many large organizations including Statistics Canada, the National Research Council, and IBM. He has been the project manager of numerous accessible online products, has developed strategy and design for CFIA, CRA, CMHC, Health Canada, Canadian Heritage, Industry Canada, and the International Space Station … as well as many private sector and non-profit organizations. He is an invited expert to the W3C which is responsible for WCAG.
