PDA Event: Incorporating Accessibility into Library OER Programs & Initiatives

Thursday, October 27, 2022 - 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Open Educational Resources (OER) are meant to be as open and available as possible, but if they’re not accessible or on accessible platforms, how “open” are they really? In this webinar, staff from the Michigan State University (MSU) Libraries will share how they’ve integrated accessibility into their OER initiatives and OER grant program to improve the accessibility of OER created at MSU. In order to hopefully implement similar OER accessibility processes at their libraries, attendees can expect to learn about OER Accessibility Resources, MSU Libraries’ OER Accessibility Checklist & Grant Program Accessibility Requirements, MSU Libraries’ Staff who Work on OER Accessibility, MSU Libraries’ OER Accessibility Evaluation Workflow & Procedures, 
Specific OER Accessibility Challenges/Issues and OER Accessibility Tips and Lessons Learned.

Heidi Schroeder is the Accessibility Coordinator at Michigan State University Libraries.

Chandlee Marcyk-Taylor is the Digital Course Materials Coordinator at Michigan State University Libraries.
