Some advice from the ranks:
If you're doing a workshop on teaching, and using a powerpoint, don't make the words float in.
If you're doing a workshop on making things accessible for disabled folks, don't make everyone do a form where they have to fill in tiny bubbles.
If you're doing a workshop on making things accessible for disabled folks, don't keep the lights turned down way low when you're asking them to fill out the form with tiny bubbles.
So, here's a conundrum:
If you do a presentation using powerpoint, usually reading your powerpoint slide aloud is a crappy and irritating technique.
BUT, if you're trying to make your slide accessible to people with seeing difficulties, then reading your slide aloud may be helpful.
There's something absolutely crappy about using a ton of paper (okay, I exaggerate, a pile, though) to copy all your slides so that people can take notes next to the slides when you're pretty much reading the slides aloud. How do you balance your desire to have people take notes about what you've just read aloud with your ethical responsbility not to waste resources?
Can you tell I hated this workshop? It's sad, too, because I really think making our campus more welcoming (which is beyond basic accessibility or accomodation) is important, but I left this workshop wanting to never hear anyone talk about these issues again. I learnd a few basic terminology things, but nothing that's really going to help me as either an instructor or a community member.
