Hi CATO members - it might be worth encouraging your council and commission members to sign up for this. When exploring accessibility it's good to start by learning what accessibility entails and how to make council/commission materials accessible! The January session is about full, but December still has space.

Please share out (some folks from your councils have approached me asking for the info - I'd rather it come from you or your council/commission chair).

Due to popular demand, we are adding another section of Accessibility 101 to be offered during the month of December (with "soft" assignment due dates because of finals, grading, holiday festivities, etc.). We have also added additional seats to the January session - but it's filling fast!

Registration is now open for the Dec 5 - Jan 8 session of Accessibility 101: The Basics of Inclusive Design

This 3-week (stretched over 5 weeks), free, online, asynchronous course is designed for faculty and staff who want to learn simple and quick steps to make materials accessible for people with disabilities and better for all users. Participants do not need to be tech savvy to take this course, but familiarity with MS Office applications and Canvas will be important. Participants will be introduced to basic accessibility concepts, practices, and inclusive design standards. The time commitment for this course is approximately 20 hours.

**A note about this session. Since the training will fall during a time known for holiday chaos, assignment due dates will not be strictly enforced - allowing participants to move through at their own pace with an understanding that course facilitators are also allowed time to enjoy some holiday cheer outside of work.

Go to SBCTC's training website<http://www.sbctc.edu/colleges-staff/programs-services/elearning-open-education/training-registration.aspx> to register.

If interested, do not wait to register.
This class has a tendency to fill within 24 hours.
Space is limited!
