Designing Accessible Open Educational Resources: a Hands-on Workshop

This 3 hour workshop will be facilitated by Amanda Coolidge, BCcampus and Josie Gray, Open Education Production Assistant. Amanda and Josie are two of the authors of the published BC Open Textbook Accessibility Toolkit, a collaboration between BCcampus and CAPER-BC. This kit was developed to highlight what creators (such as instructional designers, educational technologists, librarians, administrators, teaching assistants) need to know to make truly open and accessible textbooks and materials for students.


Topics covered from the Toolkit will include:

  • What is Universal Design?
  • What content is challenging from an accessibility perspective and how do we make them accessible? e.g. images, tables, weblinks, multimedia, formulas.


Participants are invited to bring the educational materials they are currently developing (powerpoints, documents, courses, etc.) or planning to develop and these can be worked on in the hands-on part of the workshop.
