Ally For Staff
To help support
staff with accessibility improvements and the use of Ally, a series of workshops will be
facilitated by Digital Education.
These workshops will:
- introduce key considerations for accessibility, including the change in recent legislation and what this means for teaching and learning content.
- Demonstrate Ally for Moodle along with tips and tricks on creating accessible content.
- These workshops support the materials we have updated on the DLE, 'Creating Accessible Content'.
If you have any queries or concerns, then please speak to us by
- Attending the dedicated accessibility workshop on November, 3rd, 19th or December 1st and 17th. We will add more sessions before Semester 2.
- Or emailing us via firstname.lastname@example.org
"Whilst we have been isolating in our homes, worrying about loved ones and missing all those activities we previously took for granted we have seen tremendous courage and dedication from key workers and researchers across the UK, many of whom were our own staff and students. As a University, we have never been more proud."
