Event Description 

We wanted to thank you for a semester of thoughtful work, and help prepare you for success for next semesters accommodations. To keep you from unknowingly increasing your workload or inadvertently making your course inaccessible, the accessibility office invites you to attend this informational with an open Q&A session at the end. This will be a great opportunity to ask any questions you may have had from last semester and prepare yourself for implementing accommodations in the coming semester.

The information covered can help minimize commonly overlooked pain points for you and your students by teaching you how to set up your course accessibly. 

This informational supports your role in providing accommodations by covering: our new Accommodate process, updates to our SharePoint, how to make course content accessible, accommodation stipulations for intensives/retreats, maintaining academic rigor in alternative assessments of knowledge, and concerns with applying non-approved accommodations (agenda outline included below).  

Let us support and prepare you so that you can better support your students!
