Guidelines for Accessible Presentations

As you prepare your ISCHE presentation, we ask you to bear in mind the diversity of our membership and your audience. ISCHE spans many disciplines, nationalities, languages, cultural communities, and learning styles. Think about issues of privilege and injustice and reflect on the inclusions and exclusions of your presentation.
ISCHE strongly encourages participants to abide by the principles of accessibility in academic presentations which often have unintended benefits for everyone.
