TLP Focus: What Faculty Should Know About the Accessibility Technology Initiative

See our new web page answering your frequently asked questions: http://www.csuchico.edu/tlp/accessibility/faq.shtml

Provost Flake announced in December that the short-term goal for our campus is to have all course syllabi accessible to all students. TLP regularly offers a one-hour workshop on how to do this called “Make Your Syllabus Accessible with Microsoft Word”. This past summer, TLP hosted a two-day institute for 60 faculty who learned how to create an accessible syllabus, Universal Design for Learning, and how to use Vista to enhance accessibility for all users. This fall semester, another 14 faculty members took the one-hour syllabus workshop, and during the winter intersession another 26 attended. It’s best to learn in a group! Group workshops for your departments are available, by appointment. Faculty Symposiums for TILT and CELT were offered in the fall, with faculty demonstrating how they are applying these new strategies to their courses.

Confused about how to begin working with ATI? Start by making your syllabus accessible: training, tutorials and a checklist are online at http://www.csuchico.edu/tlp/accessibility/syllabus.
