ADA awareness for faculty badge
The University Compliance Office and UITS Assistive Technology & Accessibility Centers (ATAC) encourage anyone who serves in a teaching capacity to take this online course, which is delivered via Canvas and takes an estimated 15-30 minutes to complete.
Those that complete the badge will have a better understanding of:
- How to respond to a student with disabilities
- How to strive for the best possible course accessibility as a faculty member
- Which university and campus offices/resources to contact and when
- How a given course material or activity may present accessibility concerns
Learners have the option to experience an interactive story or review materials in a “just the facts” format and take a brief quiz. Successful course completion results in a badge.
To take this course, please self-enroll in the ADA Awareness for Faculty badge, which is taught via Canvas.
Course accessibility badge (pilot)
By building accessibility into a course from the outset, faculty can avoid having to retrofit inaccessible content when a student with a disability enrolls. The Accessibility badge teaches faculty the best practices for creating an inclusive learning environment that saves time and maximizes learning for all students.
