Creating Accessible Syllabi and Homepages training offered this summer
A new training opportunity, Creating Accessible Syllabi and Homepages, is available for faculty throughout the summer. The training sessions will provide templates and hand-on guidance for participants to create both a course syllabus and a homepage.
The syllabus page provides basic information of the course: instruction contact, description, requirements, grading and schedule. The syllabus should also be made available in print form as an alternative means of representation. The homepage is an excellent place to provide a welcome message along with a detailed requirements of your course.
The session will help participants:
- Create a front page and set it as a course homepage.
- Modify a syllabus template for a Canvas course.
The sessions in August will take place in Calvin Hall on the following dates: Aug. 1-2, 5-9, 12-16 and 19-22. Sessions are offered at 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Mondays; 10 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. on Tuesdays; 9 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. on Wednesdays; 2:30 p.m. on Thursdays; and 2 p.m. on Fridays. Any deviation from these options will be reflected on the Learning and Development calendar and in HRIS.
To register for this session, you can either sign up through HRIS Self-Service or send an email to Megan Eakin at firstname.lastname@example.org. When sending an email, please include your name, employee ID, course title, and course number, WTD217.
