Digital Accessibility Resources for You at CWRU!

Both new and veteran faculty know that when it comes to learning, there is no one-size-fits-all method for success. Because each student has unique needs that impact course engagement and performance, it can be helpful to incorporate accessibility and universal design principles into your courses to maximize students’ learning potential. Doing so will address CWRU’s mission of inclusion and diversity by helping diverse learners effectively process and interact with digital content. This session will focus on how faculty can use new and existing campus resources to help their students access and learn from the course content, while also ensuring ADA compliance. We will discuss how to use these resources efficiently and with minimal impact on your normal workflow! 

Join Francine Diaz (Teaching + Learning Technologies), Elise Geither (UCITE), Scott Bryden (Office of Accommodated Testings & Services), and Eboni Porter (Disability Resources) as they discuss universal learning design, digital accessibility, and resources available at CWRU. Participants are encouraged to bring a laptop or mobile device. If possible, a sandbox course in Canvas should be set up beforehand.

Join us for that session on Wednesday, October 16, 2019 from 12:45 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the Herrick Room, which is on the ground floor of the Allen Building (at the corner of Euclid and Adelbert). 
A pizza lunch, sodas, and water will be provided at this session. To register for this session, please email
