You’ve heard about “accessibility,” but do you know what it means for your project? This workshop will teach you how to make your project — both its products and processes — accessible to all. You will learn principles, standards, and techniques for developing digital projects that are equitably accessible to people with a range of abilities/disabilities, technologies, and backgrounds. For grants that require projects to meet accessibility guidelines, you will learn to develop an accessibility plan for applications. As a result of this workshop, participants will understand how and why accessibility matters in digital projects, and will have resources to use and refer back to as projects progress.

Note: This workshop will be held on Zoom. You will receive a reminder and a Zoom link one hour before the workshop.

About the Digital Scholarship 101 workshop series:
This series of workshops helps scholars avoid outdated projects, unpreserved knowledge, uncredited labor, and privacy or consent issues by emphasizing process in the project life cycle. Workshop participants learn how to conceptualize the life cycle of a project using human-centered design and backwards modelling when planning their projects to better understand how to version, archive, and preserve their research projects. Throughout the series, thematic questions around sustainability, preservation, accessibility, privacy, consent, grant requirements, and teaching with research will be examined. We encourage you to come with a project in mind and bring materials if available, but is not required to attend.
