TILT – Accessible Syllabi – What are the benefits to students?

An “accessible syllabus” is highly usable by all students including those with disabilities, more easily updated by the faculty member, and is created using best practices and organization with software faculty already commonly use, such as MS Word. Dozens of faculty have attended TLP’s workshop to make their syllabi accessible, and three of those faculty members were kind enough to share their experiences working with their own syllabus, adopting a syllabus template for a new course, and getting feedback from students on their new syllabus. Presenting on February 26, 2009 at our TILT Symposium about accessible syllabi were Laurel Hill-Ward (Special Education), Kathryn Schifferle (Marketing) and Julie Schneider (Nutrition and Food Science) .
