Illinois State University is committed to the inclusion of persons with disabilities in University programs and activities. The Center for Teaching, Learning, and Technology supports faculty in making course materials accessible in both online and face-to-face teaching environments. A CTLT staff member will work one-on-one with you to identify steps you can take to ensure that your course materials are equally accessible to all students, including those with disabilities.
The Accessibility Consultation will include one or more of the following, depending on the instructor’s needs and time constraints:
- Initial meeting
- At the initial meeting, we will ask you to provide a context for the process by answering some questions about the course, your students, and your teaching.
- Information Gathering/Research Period (optional)
- A CTLT consultant will gather additional information though material reviews and/or reviews of relevant literature.
- Feedback Phase
- The CTLT consultant will meet with the instructor to share relevant findings from the information gathering/research period.
- Action Phase
- Once you have received our feedback, we ask that you determine a “plan of action” for putting our findings into action to enrich your teaching.
- Only instructors can request a consultation.
- CTLT is not in the business of evaluating teaching. Consultants provide information to be used to improve teaching & learning.
- No information we gather as a result of the consultation process will be shared with anyone else at the university or beyond without the instructor’s express consent.
- CTLT facilitators will work with interested faculty to determine appropriate timing for consultation.
