Tulane's Accessible Syllabus Site

Tulane's Accessible Syllabus Site

From the site:  

This website is dedicated to helping instructors build a syllabus that plans for diverse student abilities and promotes an atmosphere in which students feel comfortable discussing their unique abilities. Countless instructors complain that students don’t read the syllabus. We believe students would use the document more effectively if it were designed more accessibly.

Accessibility is necessary for all learning, and disability studies provides a key lens through which to question our classroom practices and resources. To create more inclusive teaching, instructors must plan for diversity in the classroom and adapt to the immediate needs of students.

Although I have been working to make my courses and syllabi accessible for quite some time, I still found this website helpful. The specific examples (under "rhetoric") were particularly useful. Worth a read for all faculty.
