Accessibility and Visual Culture
March 27th – 4:00-5:30 pm, On Zoom
Hosted by Molly Bauer, Pedro Cabello del Moral, and Luke Waltzer
This workshop will introduce participants to the guidelines of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and will share practical strategies for designing accessible teaching materials, with a focus on visual and material culture. Topics will include offering multiple avenues for accessing visual information, developing alternative text for images, and varying opportunities for direct engagement with artworks and museums. This workshop will also consider how much of the discourse surrounding viewership and audience of visual materials often assumes able-bodied and neurotypical subjectivity without accounting for alternative experiences of these media.
