Workshop Description

PC003 Champion Accessibility Using a Design for All Perspectives

Designing for all means that everyone–regardless of their background or abilities–can participate and learn in a meaningful way. This can only be achieved by prioritizing accessibility. This workshop will overview foundations of accessible design, including standards and laws, but also incorporate case study exploration and hands-on application.

Anyone can benefit from understanding accessibility; no matter if you manage L&D teams or develop content. For instructional designers, we will examine best practices and the accessibility features of common tools. For facilitators, we will discuss situations requiring accessibility accommodations. For people or organization leaders, we will review maturation models and methods for operationalizing accessibility.

I promise that you will leave this workshop with new ideas, methods, and empathy. Bring your laptop, your stories, and an open mind. Let's design for all.
