Description

Accommodating Common Accommodations

Northwestern boasts a talented and diverse student body, with many individual learners who have individualized needs. And with these, students sometimes require special accommodations, whether for a specific learning disability, physical limitation, or an unusually demanding schedule, such with student athletes who are frequently away from campus.

In this first session of a series on accessibility, we cover some of the most common affordances requested of Northwestern faculty (extra time, extended due dates, note-taking, and redundant learning materials. With these considerations in mind, we show you how to use and customize Canvas to address these specific needs.

Throughout the year, we offer additional workshops in the series that cover how to make the content in your course more accessible for your students.


This workshop is a partnership between the Media and Design Studio, AccessibleNU, and Northwestern Information Technology.
