Accessible PowerPoints and Presentation Delivery

Event Description

Presentations can take many forms. They can be instructional, informative, or persuasive, but the challenge remains the same: how do we transfer knowledge from ourselves to an audience in a way that is clear and effective?

In this workshop, we’ll be tackling this question while centering the experiences of people with disabilities as we consider our audience. We’ll be discussing ways to design, structure, and deliver presentations with accessibility in mind. At the end of this workshop, participants will have a better understanding of the unique challenges people with disabilities may face when being presented with new information and ways to minimize those challenges.

In order to participate in all the workshop activities, participants will need to bring a laptop with PowerPoint installed.

To request disability-related accommodations, please contact [email protected] at least one week before the event.

Refreshments will be provided.
