Abstract:

Topic: Providing access to multiple styles of power point presentations through faculty instruction and resources to enhance diversity, access, and equality in the classroom.

Our goal for this presentation is to provide an easily accessible resource of suggested techniques to enhance access to and learning outcomes for all types of power point presentations. This presentation will focus on three types of power point presentations; student generated, instructional, and professional presentations, and how techniques of Universal Design in Learning (UDL) can be incorporated to improve accessibility and learning outcomes for students of differing learning styles.

Creating a high quality-learning environment through accessible Power Point presentations involves incorporating techniques of Universal Design in Learning (UDL). These techniques provide greater access for those with disabilities, and improve instruction by engaging all students through a variety of learning modalities. UDL strategies enhance learning by using assistive technology to create accessibility for students with sensory or learning disabilities. By using screen reading software for those with visual impairments, captioning the narrative for hearing or speech impaired people, and providing tactile representation of data, Power Point presentations become a very effective and inclusive teaching tool. Eliminating bright, flashing, and distracting images and focusing on coherent, simple presentations, faculty can offer students with different learning styles a choice in how they process the information.

To achieve the best practice for expanding learning opportunities and creating equity among student learners, this presentation will demonstrate specific techniques and tools that incorporate principles of UDL into a variety of power point presentations. Using campus and on-line resources, in addition to software-based accessibility features, faculty will learn the tools to customize Power Point presentations to meet the needs of a diverse audience.
