Instructors are responsible for providing equal access to information and reducing barriers to learning for all students. For students with disabilities, this might be accomplished through the provision of academic accommodations. Teaching Assistants (TAs) and Assistant Instructors (AIs) are often assigned to facilitate accommodations. In each course, TAs and AIs have an opportunity to create an inclusive environment and foster meaningful participation in the classroom since students often feel more comfortable communicating with them. During this 90-minute session, you will learn about how to work with students with disabilities in your role as a TA or AI!
