This workshop offers practical tips for increasing accessibility in teaching that TAs can implement in the courses they support. The session is designed to increase participants’ awareness of barriers that students with disabilities experience in the classroom, and show how TAs can facilitate and promote equitable access to learning. Participants will also learn from the Accessibility Advisor about the resources available to them, as employees, to manage their own access needs in their work.
By attending this workshop, TAs will be able to:
• Identify barriers that students with disabilities experience in various instructional settings (e.g. lectures, conference, discussions, exams)
• Analyze sample case studies, and identify opportunities to enhance accessibility
• Locate available tools and resources to support accessibility at McGill
