Exam Sign-Up Deadline

For all timed assessments, students must sign up a minimum of 14 days prior to the exam date.  

Review and Confirm Your Accommodations

All students who are actively registered with Student Accessibility and Achievement must review and confirm their accommodations for the Winter 2023 semester. This can be done through the new Review and Confirm My Accommodations module in Clockwork.

Students will not have access to scheduling your tests and exams, requesting alternate format materials, Note-taking services through Clockwork, or sending Reasonable Consideration Requests to your instructors until this step is done.

Please review our How To Guide on Reviewing and Confirming Your Accommodations for step-by-step instructions.

10 Tips for implementing UDL in your class

Please see the McGill Equity Team's article, Building an Accessible Course in myCourses.

  1. Facilitate the production of class notes.

  2. Provide electronic handouts ahead of class.

  3. Suggest electronic versions of textbooks where available.

  4. Include in your course outline a statement welcoming diverse learners:

    As the instructor of this course I endeavor to provide an inclusive learning environment. However, if you experience barriers to learning in this course, do not hesitate to discuss them with me and Student Accessibility and Achievement, 514-398-6009.  

  5. Wherever possible design an exam that includes time for students to review their work.

  6. Avoid assessing students through one type of evaluation (e.g. multiple choice).

  7. Use audio or video recording whenever available for classes.

  8. Use myCourses proactively (e.g. online discussions, supplementary material, audio feedback).

  9. Be creative about alternating learning activities (e.g. group work).

  10. Reward engagement and participation rather than penalizing non-attendance.

We recognize that implementing all of these tips is a tall order, however we encourage faculty to consider adding an element each time they revisit a course. For more information, check out some of our other UDL resources.
