Understanding POUR - The Basics of Universal Design for Learning

Wednesday, March 25, 2020 12:00pm - 1:30pm CDT

For many of us in education, accessibility guidelines can be confusing. Fortunately, they can be distilled into four core principles, as captured by the acronym POUR (Perceivable, Operable, Understandable and Robust).  Many of the learning materials educators use in classrooms and labs are self-created and understanding how to make them accessible to all students including those with disabilities is critical. Experts from the National AEM Center at CAST, in collaboration with the NSF funded ATE Central project,  will offer practical, applied techniques that educators can implement right away. Instructors can build upon their higher-level understanding of the POUR core qualities to ensure their classroom materials “are accessible and work for all learners from the start, by design.”

Designing for Accessibility with POUR

Monday, June 10, 2019 12:00pm - 1:30pm CDT

Many of the learning materials educators use in the classroom (such as lecture handouts and the course syllabus) are self-created and understanding how to make them accessible to all students including those with disabilities is critical. The authoring tools used to create these materials often include options for adding accessibility into the content creation workflow, and standards such as the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) provide guidance for how to do so.  The WCAG guidelines are written in technical language that can be confusing to even veteran developers. Fortunately, they can be distilled into four core principles, as captured by the acronym POUR (Perceivable, Operable, Understandable and Robust), that define four qualities of an accessible user experience. Using the revision of a course syllabus as the context, this webinar, brought to you by the NSF funded AccessATE project and the National AEM Center at CAST,  will focus on practical tips and techniques based on the POUR principles you can implement right away to ensure your documents are accessible and work for all learners from the start, by design.

Three Common Evaluation Fails and How to Prevent Them

Wednesday, January 30, 2019 12:00pm - 2:00pm CST

In this webinar, experienced STEM education evaluator Kirk Knestis will share strategies for effectively communicating with evaluation clients to avoid three common “evaluation fails.” (1) Project implementation delays; (2) evaluation scope creep (clients wanting something more or different from what was originally planned); and (3) substantial changes in the project over the course of the evaluation. These issues are typical causes for an evaluation to be derailed and fail to produce useful and valid results. Webinar participants will learn how clear documentation—specifically, an evaluation contract (legal commitment to the work), scope of work (detailed description of evaluation services and deliverables), and study protocol (technical details concerning data collection and analysis)—can make potentially difficult conversations go better for all involved, averting potential evaluation crises and failures. Getting these documents right and using them in project communications helps ensure a smoothly operating evaluation, happy client, and profitable project for the evaluator. For a sneak peek of some of what Kirk will address in this webinar, see his blog post, http://www.evalu-ate.org/blog/knestis-apr18/.

Tell a good story: Crafting mission statements and messages for your ATE project or center

Tuesday, January 29, 2019 12:00pm - 1:30pm CST

The root of the word ‘communication’ is ‘communis’, meaning to make common. Unfortunately, many of us in the education and grant-funded sectors struggle with identifying the main messages we need to make common to our key stakeholders. And for many of us in the ATE community, we could use help in creating simple, memorable ways to speak and write consistently about our project and center’s work. Clearly defined and consistently implemented mission statements and messaging platforms are key to ensuring that all points of contact with your project or center will reinforce the right messages.

In this live webinar, we will be joined by Farra Trompeter, Vice President of Big Duck – a communications firm that works exclusively with nonprofits based in Brooklyn NY, and Rachael Bower, Director/PI of ATE Central, who will review how these messaging elements can be created to more effectively engage students, partners, funders, and other key external audiences. For those who attended the ATE PI pre-conference workshop, we’ll also revisit the relationship between brand strategy (positioning and personality) and messaging. Farra will provide some examples of how other organizations define and use these tools with examples you can learn from, as Rachael helps connect lessons from the wider nonprofit world to the ATE community.
