Accessible General Use Technologies for Faculty

Status: Ongoing Projects
Year: 2023-2024

Over half of the students with this abilities at Dawson College as well as at other institutions do not register for access services from their college. This makes it very difficult to reach them. Therefore the best way of ensuring that students with disabilities have an inclusive education is to ensure that their professors use accessible digital tools. We will develop modules dealing with things such as ensuring that faculty know how to put extended time into Moodle quizzes and tests, how to use Kahoot and Poll Everywhere in an accessible manner, how to make sure that PowerPoints and coursepacks are accessible, and how to make sure that teachers know how to use TEAMS in an accessible way.

This project is funded by Entente Canada-Québec (ECQ).
