Meghan's Experience

Attended Accessible Documents and PDFs

I learned a lot from the Access Team about accessibility when it comes to documents and PDFs. The workshop was practical and learning-oriented, and I left with actionable steps to take with my own document creation. The Access Team created a space where it was OK not to have been doing these things perfectly, as long as you were committed to trying to get better. This work is critical and there is much more that we could be doing to push it forward, and I was even more convinced of that by the end of the workshop. They push you to think not just about how to make adjustments in response to documented accessibility needs of students you serve, but how to rethink your materials so that they incorporate principles of universal design, and are more accessible for all learners.
