What resources can help faculty make their courses more accessible to students with disabilities?
The U.S. Department of Education has funded demonstration projects at postsecondary institutions nationwide to help faculty make their courses accessible to students with disabilities. A list of the postsecondary institutions that received funding to develop these projects, the project descriptions, and contact information can be found under Demonstration Projects to Ensure Quality Higher Education for Students with Disabilities.
DO-IT at the University of Washington used its Demonstration Project grant to create The Faculty Room. This website gives advice to faculty about universal design of instruction and accommodations for students with disabilities. It also summarizes legal issues and provides links to resources.
