Ensure Students with Disabilities are Engaged & Successful in Remote & Hybrid Learning Environments
Accommodations do not stop when courses go online! Help your faculty and staff members understand their legal responsibilities, recognize hidden disabilities and collaborate with key resources on campus so they can provide engaging content that contributes to students’ academic success.
Ensure that your students with disabilities will be successful, regardless of course delivery method.
Gather your faculty and staff to explore the specific challenges and opportunities faculty members are facing when teaching online and/or hybrid classes that include students with disabilities. Our expert presenter will help your team keep this student population engaged, ensure there is an equal opportunity for success in the "current normal" of learning, and that you are doing everything you need to keep your institution compliant.
As a result of this webinar, your faculty will be able to:
- Educate faculty on their legal responsibilities to accommodate students with disabilities in their online and hybrid courses — provide options that will engage, retain and graduate students with disabilities.
- Incorporate ADA standards into curriculum and syllabi — use diverse approaches and mediums to capture students’ attention, engage them in the learning process and safeguard students’ academic and social success.
- Prepare faculty to support their students with disabilities and accommodation needs to foster students’ independence, growth and degree completion — equip them with the knowledge and skills to fulfill their individual potential and develop educational and career goals so they can lead full and independent lives.
- Recognize the unique situations students with disabilities encounter (required accommodations, medical needs, hidden disabilities) — develop relationships with university and community partners for assistive technology and online learning tools to ensure a smooth transition to online or hybrid learning that engages and improves retention.
- Provide opportunities for faculty and staff to collaborate with key campus resources to engage your students with disabilities — foster a joint approach to so they are successful learners on campus, online or with remote learning.
