Accommodated Teaching and Learning
Accommodated teaching and learning occurs when a barrier exists to a student’s full participation in an educational setting based on the functional limitations of his or her disability. Even with the best accessible course design (design meant to reduce barriers to learning), accommodations are often needed. For example, a student with a hearing impairment may still require a sign language interpreter during lectures and seminars. This is an accommodation.
The links on this page are designed to provide course instructors with information and resources on a variety of disabilities, plus tips for accommodating students with these disabilities. If you require more information or information on accommodating a particular student, please feel free to contact that student’s Disability Specialist.
