for Educators

Accessibility is a shared responsibility of everyone in the Queen's community. For educators, it is important to plan and design your course(s) so that the material is inherently inclusive and accessible for all. More than ever, students learn in a variety of ways, using different methods and media. Accessible teaching can minimize the need for individual support for students with disability while enhancing the learning of all students.
