Accessible Interactive Simulations to Create a More Inclusive STEM Experience

Tuesday, March 05 | 4:30PM–5:15PM ET
Session Type: Virtual
Faculty often struggle to provide students with disabilities access to interactive and engaging STEM learning experiences. The PhET Interactive Simulations project at University of Colorado Boulder is engaged in pioneering research and development to make their widely used OER simulations accessible to all students, including students with visual and mobility impairments. Join us to learn about the new accessibility features, to experience these features in action, and to discuss how to use accessible PhET simulations to create a more inclusive classroom, where all students can engage collaboratively in science inquiry.

Outcomes: Describe key features used to make simulations accessible * Provide support to students with disabilities in using accessible simulations * Plan the use of accessible simulations in college contexts
