We are happy to introduce a new feature in our Accommodation Request Portal: faculty access! Using your UWW log in credentials, you will be able to see:
Instructions for using this feature may be found HERE. For questions, please contact the Center for Students with Disabilities.
Click the link below to access the Faculty Portal (please note: if you have no students requesting accommodations in your classes, you will not have anything to see).
You will still receive emails as before, but will have continued access to the same information through the Faculty Portal.
Below are two sample statements regarding accommodations to include in your course syllabus. Please feel free to contact us with any questions regarding what information should be included in your syllabus.
Resources to help you create a classroom environment that maximizes the learning of all students, regardless of disability, can be found on your campus, online, in publications, and through professional organizations. We have listed some such resources below:
Will you have a Sign Language interpreter in your classroom this semester? Information on the role of the interpreter in your classroom and general information regarding the interpreting process. Included is important information on removing instructional barriers for all students including students with disabilities.
For instructors creating PowerPoint presentations. This article will assist in creating a presentation as accessible as possible: http://webaim.org/techniques/powerpoint/#create
Access 4 All (available at http://etc.usf.edu/techease/4all/ ) is a website where students (and faculty) can learn more about the assistive technology they have available to them as part of their operating systems.
The IDeA Center is dedicated to making environments and products more usable, safer and healthier in response to the needs of an increasingly diverse population. The IDeA Center's activities are based on the philosophy of Inclusive Design, often called "Universal Design" or "Design for All." It is a way of thinking that can be applied in any design activity, business practice, program or service involving interaction of people with the physical, social or virtual worlds.
The IDeA Center has divided its content into two separate websites: the IDeA Center (current site) and Universal Design E-World (UD E-World) . The IDeA Center site provides a brief overview of what we do, while UD E-World serves as a participatory environment with web based tools to support the "community of practice" in universal design. All of our ongoing research, development projects and publications can be found on UD E-World.
