CTE releases new Accessibility in Teaching resource

Tuesday, October 23, 2018

According to the June 2018 Canadian University Survey Consortium survey of graduating students, 22% of graduating students in Canada self-identify as having a disability. It is interesting to note that, among those with a disability, 36% require accommodation.

The Centre for Teaching Excellence is pleased to share its new resource: Accessibility in Teaching. Aligning with the University of Waterloo’s commitment to barrier-free accessibility for persons with disabilities, this webpage provides practical resources for designing and implementing accessible instruction. Accessible instructional practices aim to address the diverse needs of learners.

Accessibility in Teaching is for anyone who is designing and teaching courses, or facilitating workshops and other instructional sessions on campus.

We will continue to update this page as we develop and become aware of additional resources. For questions about this webpage or accessible instruction in general, contact CTE's Christine Zaza, Faculty Liaison.
