Creating Accessible Digital Materials (faculty)

For faculty aiming to create an inclusive learning community, accessibility is an important element of course (and content) design. Unlike in the past, most mainstream applications today (like Google Workspace) make it incredibly easy to create digital materials which are accessible from the start – avoiding the stress of retrofitting inaccessible materials in the middle of a busy semester. This guide presents 8 techniques relevant to common faculty workflows, demonstrating how easy it is to make your digital materials more equitable for all students, with minimal effort. Of course, no brief guide can offer a comprehensive overview, so we recommend speaking with the Office of Accessible Education for in-depth conversations about accessibility.
