Attention Camosun College Students!

Do accessibility-related challenges impact your student life at college?

Accessibility challenges for students at college can be the result of a mismatch between what you need to succeed as a student and how components of college experiences & environments have been designed. If you cannot access things like information or services in the way they have been designed or provided, this may have created accessibility-related challenges for you.

For example, you may have experienced accessibility-related challenges associated with  a physical or learning disability, or associated with speaking English as a second language, or associated with financial limitations, or associated with the use of technology at the college.

The 2019/2020 “Universal Design for Learning (UDL) Project: Phase 2” is a faculty/student-partners project at Camosun College. Our project team is interested in hearing your stories about accessibility-related challenges in college life, learning what would help to minimize those challenges, and creating learning tools out of your stories that will help our college community better understand how we can all help design experiences and environments that are more accessible for everyone.

What does our college community need to know about accessibility-related challenges? What do you want us to know?

Opportunities to connect in person or online will be available from February 24 through March 16, 2020. 

Questions about this project may be directed to the UDL Project team leader: Sue Doner in the Centre for Excellence in Teaching & Learning.
