Have you wondered how you can make your virtual events more accessible for all audiences? Do you have questions on terminology, technology, and best practices? The CICS Events Office invites all interested parties to part one of this two-part workshop series on virtual event accessibility. 

During this two-day workshop, Dan Cannity and Josh Pearson from the Instructional Media Lab will present information designed to help event organizers understand accessibility through the lens of virtual events. Day one (September 25) will cover basic terminology, give participants an introduction to designing content, and give recommendations on how to make events more accessible to audiences. Day two (September 30) will highlight what assistive technologies are available to utilize and give overviews on how they function. Both presentations will be followed by a question-and-answer session with Dan and Josh.

For any questions about this event, please contact Randy Barrios.
