UIS Learning and Development: Speed mentoring session #6 new [Standby] 11:30 - 12:30 UIS Online Courses - instructor-led

UIS is offering new members the chance to join a virtual speed mentoring event. This energetic learning and networking activity will provide the opportunity to speak to some of UIS’ senior leaders and managers from different disciplines.

UIS mentors involved with the event:

  • Ian Leslie - Director
  • Simon Redhead – Systems Development Manager
  • Kate Livingstone – Head of Digital Transformation
  • Hazel Johannessen – Portfolio Manager
  • Alex Blandford – Lead Product Manager
  • Rachel Coleman – Head of Enterprise Database Application
Content Community:Making your content more accessible new [Places] 12:00 - 13:00 UIS Online Courses - instructor-led

Accessible content is easy to find, understand and interact with, regardless of the user's ability or the device they are using.

One common misconception is that web accessibility only helps people who have a permanent disability. Though 1 in 5 of us in the UK have a disability, all of us experience temporary and situational disabilities during our lifetime. This session builds on existing accessibility guidance from the content community.

This content community event will also cover:

  • Updates about new WCAG 2.2 accessibility standards
  • Common content accessibility issues in Drupal, SharePoint and Shorthand, and how to fix them
  • Tools and tips for creating accessible web pages, videos, documents, social media posts and more

The session is for everyone interested in creating content.

A recording of this event will be available on the Content Community SharePoint site for anyone who cannot attend.
