Did you know about the new EU directives on digital accessibility? To find out more take a look at the guidance accessibility requirements for public sector websites. The guidance covers how to make your public sector website or mobile app more inclusive and meet accessibility standards.
NADP is the Professional Association for disability and inclusivity practitioners in further and higher education. In association with Dr Abi James NADP are offering training events on Improving Digital Accessibility & the new EU Directive during March 2019.
What you will gain from the workshop
Accessibility means more than putting materials online and it’s important that they work for everyone. Accessibility is not just about technical standards and checks. It also means making your content and online resources clear and simple enough so that most people can use it without needing to adapt it, while supporting those who do. Making digital learning material accessible also supports inclusive teaching and learning and help students learn independently.
In her workshop delegates will be introduced to guidelines, techniques and regulations for improving digital accessibility. Delegates will also get the opportunities to learn some basic accessibility techniques that can be shared with colleagues.
Dr Abi James is a digital accessibility consultant and researcher with over 15 years’ experience in the assistive technology and accessibility field. She works with HE institutions and organisations to improve their digital accessibility and inclusive practice.
