Creating Accessible Syllabi and Homepages training sessions offered this summer

Submitted by Human Capital Services - Learning and Development

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, including instruction contact, description, requirements, grading and schedule. The syllabus should also be made available in print form as an alternative means of representation. The home page is an excellent place to provide a welcome message along with a detailed requirements of your course.

Participants will conduct the following through the session:

  • Create a front page and set it as a course homepage.
  • Modify a syllabus template for a Canvas course.

The first two weeks of sessions available are in 306 Calvin Hall on Monday, May 20, through Friday, May 24, and Tuesday, May 28, through Friday, May 31. On Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, there are morning and afternoon sessions. For the time options available, please check the Learning and Development calendar.

To register for this session, you can either sign up through HRIS Self-Service or send an email to Megan Hoelting at learning-develop-hr@k-state.edu. When sending an email, please include your name, employee ID, course title, and course number WTD217.
