Created in partnership with Nicola Valley Institute of Technology and UFV, the online module, Building Strengths looks at the whole student and provides you with strategies and tips for being more inclusive in your instructional practices and to make the classroom experience more accessible to students.
Although it focuses on trades and technology fields, the knowledge gained from this course is applicable to any subject. As part of the module, you learn about universal design for learning, adapting practical spaces, cultural implications of disability, and inviting success.
Once you have completed the module, you will receive a letter of completion from Teaching and Learning which can be used in teaching dossiers.
