Faculty Implementing Accommodations

 

When students encounter barriers and are eligible for adjustments, faculty receive notification through the DSS Online Accommodation Management system.

Faculty are responsible for accessible course content and should use Universal Design formatting principles at the design stage; the Faculty Technology  Center as well as DSS can assist.

Formatting course content for accessibility is best served by the Universal Design of electronic documents and course content; Universal Design makes your course information more mobile so it's compatible across all types of devices - computers, laptops, smartphones and tablets - and across all varieties of end-user settings on their devices.  To learn the simple steps of proper formatting for your course materials, please go to http://www.ncdae.org/resources/cheatsheets/
