Understanding ADA Compliance, Accommodations & Resources: Fast Facts For Faculty
Recorded on: March 23, 2017

There are many rules, regulations, legislation, and policies that affect higher education. Whether they are long-standing or brand-new, the laws that govern faculty and students can be very confusing. However complex, it is crucially important for faculty to understand the basics in order to support student success as well as ensure compliance. Working within the parameters of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is no different.

This webinar will shine a light on the rights and responsibilities of faculty in regard to ADA compliance and accommodations, as well as the rights and responsibilities of students. Participants will walk away from this webinar with a clearer understanding of what reasonable accommodations are all about so that they can best serve their students and support student success. Participants will also identify at least one campus resource available to them and walk away knowing how to find additional resources and information both on and off campus.

ADA & Section 504 Case Studies: How To Stay Compliant, Inclusive & Supportive
Recorded on: March 30, 2017

During this webinar, participants will undertake a thorough review and analysis of two case studies that offer different intricate fact patterns focusing on issues that arise when working with and supporting students with disabilities. Topics will include providing accommodations and/or modifications, the importance of collaboration, privacy issues, compliance with institutional policies, generalizations and stereotypes, behavioral concerns, and several others.

Participants will review each case study and then analyze the fact patterns based upon the questions proposed by the facilitator. The facilitator will assist the participants as they come up with the best response to each situation presented.

As a result of this webinar, participants will know the legal considerations they should undertake when working with and supporting students with disabilities. Participants will understand the ways in which they can create an inclusive and supportive environment, while at the same time acting in compliance with the various federal disability laws.

“In my role as Dean of Student Services, I meet with a lot of different students over the course of a year. Quite often, students will share with me their frustrations about faculty’s confusion about ADA compliance and reasonable accommodations. And it can be very confusing to all of us – what is required, what is reasonable, what a campus’ resources are. It is my hope that participants will walk away from this webinar with a better understanding of the rights and responsibilities of both faculty and of students, in regard to ADA implications for the classroom.”
