3 Things - Tuesday, September 5

Back to school edition.

  1. Two-thirds of NYC public schools not fully accessible for students with physical disabilities 
    More than two-thirds of New York City public schools are not fully accessible for students with physical disabilities, making many programs out of reach for children in wheelchairs or with limited mobility, according to a new report out Wednesday.

  2. Accessible teaching strategies
    "Accessibility is about recognizing that access is a complex, relational configuration as people move and share space together. Accessible teaching requires us to be in conversation with and responsive to our students." ~ Stephanie Kerschbaum, UW professor and disability studies scholar

  3. Accessibility Buy-In: Rubrics and Faculty Development Workshops
    There are many dimensions to accessibility and universal design for learning (UDL) and many ways to become more proactive and inclusive in developing course content and delivery. As instructional technologists, we focus here on the benefits of rubrics and peer workshopping to promote universal design and garner buy-in across campus.
