Webinar: an introduction to creating accessible content as psychologists

June 8 / 16:00 - 17:30

£20

Aim

The aim of this webinar is to introduce EPs (and others) to important concepts around accessibility on the web, given that psychologists are creating more web content than ever before. This has particularly been the case since the start of covid restrictions in March 2020.

This is important for Psychology Services as:

People may not have a choice when using a public sector website or mobile app, so it’s important they work for everyone. The people who need them the most are often the people who find them hardest to use. 

(Gov.uk, 2018, Understanding accessibility requirements)

Who is this webinar for?

This webinar is for anyone creating content for the web. For example,

  • Anyone creating something that others will see on a screen
  • Anyone creating content in visual, audio or video formats
  • Psychologists, assistant psychologists or administrative support staff who create or put content on the web
  • Those working in psychology services where resources are being created for clients and then shared online
  • Those writing articles or posts designed to support others
  • Those who use social media in any professional capacity

Intended learning outcomes

By the end of this webinar you will be able to

  1. Understand what accessibility is and why it is important
  2. Recognise the ethical and legal imperative for accessible digital content
  3. Begin to critically assess the accessibility of your own content
