Students First! Accessibility for STEM (Math)
March 3 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm PST
The first step is to ensure that students with disabilities see STEM as accessible to them and that all students, can access all materials to learn. Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) courses have unique issues to solve when it comes to designing accessible materials. Professor Kelly Spoon was bitten by the accessibility bug after she won a “Teach Access” Grant to create modules for her statistics course on accessibility for data visualization. While creating those materials, the lightbulb went off! All materials in all courses need to be accessible. Join Kelly and our panel in discussing topics including Canvas built in accessibility options, Desmos, PreText and other tools important to accessibility in her math courses.
Kelly Spoon is an Associate Professor of Mathematics at San Diego Mesa College where she serves as a member of their Online Success Team and involved in all things related to professional learning. She loves trying new things in her classrooms – whether it’s experimenting with ungrading options in Calculus or teaching students about accessibility in Statistics – and sharing her successes and failures with others. When she’s not saying ‘yes’ to too many things, she is probably on a soccer field or chasing after her preschooler.
