Inclusive and Accessible Course Design Clinic

Over the past five years, the University of Minnesota has experienced a significant increase in students seeking disability accommodations in our courses. To address this increase, the University has launched a new online course, Fundamentals of Disability Accommodations and Inclusive Course Design, that is required for instructors and faculty and open to all staff and students.

To enrich and apply your recent learning experiences from this course, Teaching Support is offering Inclusive and Accessible Course Design Clinics. These clinics allow participants to get hands-on support and consultation with an advocate from local and central support teams who can answer questions and help apply these strategies for course design. More clinics will be available in August. Use the registration form to sign up to receive notification when August clinic registration is open.
