GLOBAL DIALOGUES: A Conversation with Mónica Baró on Cuban Independent Journalism and Social Activism

Monday January 31st, 2022 @ 4:30 PM

Mónica Baró Sánchez is a Cuban independent journalist. In 2015, she became one of the founders of Periodismo de Barrio (an independent digital magazine with an environmental agenda), and a member of its Editorial Board. In 2016, her story "La Mudanza," about the displacement of a vulnerable community in Santiago de Cuba, became one of the three finalists of the Gabriel García Márquez Journalism Award, organized by the Gabriel García Márquez Foundation for New Ibero-American Journalism. Her story "La Sangre Nunca Fue Amarilla" (2019), about lead poisoning, won the Gabriel García Márquez Journalism Award in the text category. Currently, Mónica lives in Madrid and works for CiberCuba News. She had to leave Cuba in January 2021 due to jail threats and harassment from the State Security Department because of her work as an independent journalist.

Teaching Students How to Create Accessible Documents

Thursday, February 24th, 2022 | 1:25PM - 2:15PM

Event Type: Webinar 
Location: Virtual 
Facilitators: Linda Stewart and Erin Bahl 

This workshop will help graduate student teachers and KSU instructors design classes in which all participants (students and instructors alike) contribute to accessible course environments. Writing and designing for accessibility (such as alt text for images, captions for video, transcripts for audio, and structured headings for documents) is an important part of developing an inclusive course community. Furthermore, it helps students prepare to write accessibly in their future careers and professional lives. Participants will explore resources for teaching academic web accessibility, then consider how to adapt these materials for their own disciplines, course content, and teaching styles.
