Workshop description

Our courses include students with diverse backgrounds, unique lived experiences, and varying abilities; these factors affect how they learn. Effective teaching considers students in the design and implementation of instruction. This workshop will introduce you to the concepts of universal design and accessibility, and help you identify concrete changes you can make to integrate these concepts into your teaching. You will discuss actions you can take to implement universal design strategies in your role as a TA.

    The University of Waterloo is committed to achieving barrier-free accessibility for persons with disabilities who are visiting, studying, or working at Waterloo. CTE’s online workshops are delivered through either WebEx, Microsoft Teams, or Bongo with the audio component available either as captioning or a transcript. CTE’s face-to-face workshops typically involve a mix of presentation and discussion-based activities, and we encourage a scent-free environment. We welcome accompanying assistants, interpreters, and note-takers. If you have questions concerning access, such as parking, building layouts, or obtaining workshop content in alternative formats, or wish to request accommodations for our programming, please let us know by emailing cte@uwaterloo.ca. Please note that some accommodations may require time to arrange.
