Hone your accessibility expertise with this webinar designed to assist in developing classroom materials that meet the core principles of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines(WCAG). 

The hour-and-a-half program uses revision of a course syllabus as a context to explore these WCAG elements, which can be summed up under the acronym POUR (Perceivable, Operable, Understandable, and Robust), as well as offering easily implementable tips and techniques. Participants will walk away with practical knowledge on creating course materials that “are accessible and work for all learners from the start, by design.” 

The webinar runs Monday, June 10 from 12:00-1:30 pm CDT and is presented by the NSF- ATE-funded AccessATE project and the National AEM Center at CAST. For more information, visit ATE Central’s event listing. Register to participate in the webinar here.

The Decommissioning Strategy Forum (produced by the ExchangeMonitor Publications & Forums) is partnering with RCNET for this year’s forum, which takes place June 17-18, 2019 at The Westin in Nashville, TN. RCNET will co-locate their annual professional meeting following the forum on June 19.

The second annual Decommissioning Strategy Forum allows attendees to learn how to capitalize on opportunities in the nuclear decommissioning market. This year’s program will explore the theme Driving Efficiency in Today’s Evolving Decommissioning Marketplace. Each session will include both a utility and supplier perspective.

“We are so excited that this partnership allows us to gain the perspective of RCNET as both attendees and speakers for the Forum,” said Nancy Berlin, Program Coordinator at ExchangeMonitor. “The decommissioning industry recognizes the necessity of reaching the next generation of professionals, and this co-location helps us to facilitate that connection.”
