June’s Monthly Brown Bag Series will feature a discussion on How to Run a Digital Health Check to ensure your content -- whether for your website, eCommunications or online course materials -- is accessible and usable. Presented by Joanna Bertrand, Director of Web Communications in Strategic Relations and Dan Jones, Chief Digital Accessibility Officer in the Office of Information Technology with a keen focus on actionable items you can use to make sure your digital content is compliant with our campus accessibility policy.
When it comes to digital content, accessibility is not just for the visually impaired or individuals with hearing loss. Accessible digital content and design improves usability for everyone, increases your website SEO (search engine optimization) and expands your audience reach.
This timely presentation will help you understand your role and responsibility for accessible content, why it’s important and most importantly will provide you with a toolset to help you create accessible content. You will walk away with strategies and best practices for creating accessible content. During the hour session, ample time for audience Q&A will exist to allow for a full understanding of policies and resources in place.
