Queen's launches accessibility training suite
By Craig Leroux, Senior Communications Officer
A newly launched accessibility training suite gives the Queen’s community easy access to the training they require under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA). The training provides information about everyone’s responsibilities under the legislation and illustrates ways to incorporate the principles of accessibility into the services Queen’s provides.
The training suite was developed by the Equity Office with guidance from the Education, Training, and Awareness Working Group under the Queen’s Accessibility Framework. It consists of four modules:
- Accessible Customer Service outlines the principles of accessibility when communicating and interacting with persons with disabilities.
- Human Rights 101 outlines the university’s disability-related obligations under the Ontario Human Rights Code.
- Access Forward provides an understanding of the standards in the Integrated Accessibility Standards Regulation.
- Accessible Instruction for Educators communicates information about making the classroom learning experience accessible to all.
