Classroom: NWCL304

What you will learn from taking this course:

  • Learn practical information and easy-to-use strategies to help you to better support the learning of students with disabilities in your classrooms and learning activities.
  • Create an inclusive class /campus and support all students in their learning and paths to success.

At the end of the course, you will be able to…

  • Define what is meant by having a disability and become familiar with a wide range of disabilities and how they impact learning
  • Identify the concepts of “duty to accommodate” and understand the process of “reasonable accommodation”
  • Apply strategies and tools from Universal Design for Learning (UDL) to create an inclusive learning environment to accommodate your students
  • Develop personal goals, address institution-wide responsibilities and identify next steps for creating inclusive campuses

One participant completed the JI course ‘Supporting Students with Disabilities’ and thought it was excellent, very helpful, and felt it should be mandatory for all faculty.
