Ready to find out what MSU Denver can do for you? We’ve got you covered.
For those who are looking to dive deeper into their accessibility knowledge and skills, we offer a series of trainings with the intention of giving attendees basic knowledge covering topics such as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), web and social media accessibility, and more.
PAC Workshop details:
Our goal is to ensure all students, faculty, staff, and community members can access all MSU Denver materials at any time. By doing so, we can sustain the diverse community that has become such an integral part of MSU Denver’s identity.
What is ADA? How did accessibility become a legal requirement? Explore the foundations of accessibility through legal and historical lenses. Learn about the history of Americans with Disabilities and the sacrifices made to make it part of public and educational discourse. We will also explore emerging tools such as Open Education Resources (OER) and how they can be reviewed for accessibility.
“A picture is worth a thousand words” – Fred R. Barnard. But not everyone can perceive an image in the same way another person can. For those with a visual disability, textual descriptions of images, called alternative text, help to understand what cannot be seen. Join us to explore best practices for authoring or creating alternative text, image long descriptions, and how to explain complex images such as memes and graphs.
Audio and video content are increasingly utilized in higher education. Accessible audio and video content can be helpful for a variety of people at any time, but is critical for those with hearing and visual disabilities. Join us to learn how to distinguish inaccessible from accessible audio and visual content and explore tools you can utilize to make audio and video content accessible to all.
What is the point of a document that cannot be read? Creating documents with both form and function makes them accessible to a much wider audience. Additionally, decades of information are locked in inaccessible PDFs. Join us and learn how to make documents in commonly used programs such as Microsoft Office and Google Suites accessible for a wider audience and how to remediate inaccessible PDFs in Adobe Acrobat.
Can posters, marketing materials, and presentations be made accessible? Yes, they can! Join us and learn which presentation platforms are most accessible and which ones to avoid. We will also explore how to maintain accessibility while adhering to principles of visual design and aesthetic for both in-person and virtual audiences.
