Accessibility is a key value, a strategic goal and good teaching practice at Carleton. Faculty and instructors have a critical role to play in creating equitable access to education for learners of all abilities. Come and let us show you what that looks like! Through a combination of mini-lectures, video, technical demonstrations, hands-on activities, and small group activities, we’ll guide you through the basics of accessibility and inclusive design.

Some of the key topics you will learn about in this 3 hour session:

  •  Understanding disability and accessibility
  • Reviewing AODA requirements
  • Creating accessible Microsoft Word documents and making your syllabus/assignments accessible
  • Using Accessibility checkers and resolving accessibility issues
  • Supporting students by linking them to key campus resources

Join us as we explore these topics and learn strategies to reduce barriers in your classroom!

To prepare for this session: 

Bring an electronic version of your course materials (e.g. course syllabus) to work on together.
