The Supporting Students with Disabilities in BC Postsecondary course invites faculty and staff to closely examine how the learning environment can create barriers for students with disabilities and consider applying easy-to-use strategies that can transform our campuses so they are inclusive for all students, including those with disabilities.
The objective of this session is to showcase the SSWD course and resource site and explain how the open resource can be utilized by instructors and staff at post-secondary schools throughout BC to strengthen their ability to apply intentional, inclusive practices to support students with disabilities in their learning and paths to success.
Example learning outcomes SSWD Course:
· Define what is meant by having a disability and become familiar with a wide range of disabilities and how they impact learning
· Identify the concepts of duty to accommodate and understand the process of reasonable accommodation
· Apply strategies and tools from Universal Design for Learning (UDL) to create an inclusive learning environment to accommodate your students
· Develop personal goals, address institution-wide responsibilities and identify next steps for creating inclusive campuses
· Recognize the range of learners and learning styles present in their classrooms linked to different types of disabilities, and consider this in relation to teaching, learning, and evaluation practices
· Apply tools to assess the learning environment given the diversity of learners
· Consider options for flexible teaching and evaluation methods that accommodate a variety of learning needs (ie. Universal Design for Learning)
·  Discuss how the website can be used by faculty and staff at post-secondary schools throughout BC
