This Week for Faculty: Resource on Accessibility in Teaching and Learning

by | Mar 9, 2020

Featured Resources on Accessibility

Accessibility in Teaching and Learning Guide for Inclusive Teaching logo

This resource provides instructors with an overview of accessibility in teaching and learning and general “getting started” strategies for making learning resources, tools, experiences, and opportunities accessible to all learners. Creating an accessible learning environment for your students is a crucial part of an inclusive practice.

Accessibility tip: use graphical indicators in teaching materials, rather than color alone. For example, the logo for the CTL’s Guide for Inclusive Teaching uses both colors and numbers to prevent confusion for users with color blindness. 

Accessible Interactive PDF: Pointers to Start

Read a CompilED blog post by CTL Senior Front-end Developer Zarina Mustapha on the accessibility experience and technical compliance of interactive PDF documents.
