Accessible Training Schedule for Spring 2020

Let’s work together on making our work documents accessible.  Bring your work documents that will be shared with the public either by web posting, email, or D2L course to one or all of these training and open lab sessions.  Come to any one or all of the session to get support and learn how to make your documents accessible.

This semester all training sessions and open labs will be held in the Library Technology Center L185 (formerly E1022).

Hands-on Training Sessions

Dates and times still to be determined but there will be a session each month:

  • Wednesday, February 12th 2-3:30 PM- Creating Accessible Documents (ROAD D2L course equivalent*)
  • Wednesday, March 18th 2-3:30 PM – Creating Accessible PDFs using Adobe Acrobat
  • Tuesday, March 24th 10-11:30 AM –  Creating Accessible Documents (ROAD D2L course equivalent*)
  • Wednesday, April 22nd 2-3:30 PM – Creating Accessible Documents (ROAD D2L course equivalent*)

Open Lab Training Sessions

Come any time during the 2-hour block with your accessibility related questions.  While these open labs are during a week with a training session, you don’t need to attend the training to come to the open lab.
