Beyond Accommodations: Creating Inclusive and Accessible Higher Education Classrooms-CLE1354

An estimated 50 million people have disabilities in the U.S. today. Disabilities may be temporary, relapsing or remitting, or long-term. Disabilities are complex; they may be a source of stigma or shame and may also be a cherished part of a person’s identity and the basis for meaningful community. The focus of this workshop is creating inclusive and accessible higher education classrooms—beyond accommodation—for a range of students with and without disabilities.
Topics in this workshop include:

  • Framing Access: Theoretical perspectives related to teaching students with disabilities
  • Access in Context: Disability Rights Movements and Higher Education
  • Accessibility Services at Cuyahoga Community College
  • Strategies for Creating Accessible Learning Environments
