Instructional designers across the UA system:
- Work closely with Disability Services and the Office of Information Technology to test and implement accessible technology and software.
- Promote Universal Design Learning principles as a way to benefit all students, not just those needing accommodations.
- Provide faculty with working templates (syllabi, calendar, etc.) that follow WCAG 2.0 guidelines.
- Support instructors through training on creating accessible materials and assistance addressing accommodations when informed of barriers to student access.
