7. Have opinions on social media & weight loss?

As part of a preliminary research project, we are looking for overweight and obese college students (18-29 years) who are trying to lose weight, and use social media at least once a day. Focus groups will be conducted to help create a future weight loss program with a social media component (e.g., Facebook). Participants will take part in a 90-minute focus group to share their opinions on barriers to weight loss, give input on what the program should look like, suggest what social networking site should be used, and view examples of how a social network could be used for weight loss. Focus groups will be audio recorded but all audio recordings collected from the groups will be confidential. Participants can choose between a $10 Amazon gift card, or 2 SONA credits as compensation for participating. This is a one-time meeting to learn about your opinions, NOT A WEIGHT LOSS TREATMENT. If you are interested, please email LaNaya Anderson to learn more (email: lanayaa@bgsu.edu).

As an educator, accessibility begins in design of the content created versus something to fix or correct after. In this session you will learn about the types of accessibility tools for users, how to structure new and existing content for best practices in accessibility and a new tool for Canvas called Ally for assessing your content for the user.
