In this webinar, participants will get an overview of Accessible Educational Materials (AEM) and then be given a preview of SETC’s new self-paced course: Accessible Content for All. This webinar will be a great start for school teams to explore concepts of AEM and how those concepts can be applied in their districts so that all students can fully participate in an inclusive learning environment. The goal of this webinar is to create interest in diving deeper into AEM and empowering teams to implement AEM in their district. To follow up and learn more, we encourage multidisciplinary teams to sign up for our online self-paced course and collaborate as they complete the course together.
