The online module, Building Strengths, is now available at http://ufv.ca/buildingstrengths. Created in partnership with Nicola Valley Institute of Technology and UFV, this learning resource looks at how to make the classroom experience more accessible to students. Although it focuses on trades and technology fields, the learning gained from this module is applicable to any subject. It looks at universal design for learning, adapting practical spaces, cultural implications of disability, and inviting success. This module focuses on the whole student and provides strategies and tips for being more inclusive in our instructional practices. Those who complete the module will receive a Letter of Completion from Teaching and Learning that can be used in teaching dossiers.
Teaching & Learning Tool Kit
The University of the Fraser Valley and the Nicola Valley Institute of Technology have put together an Accessibility Tool Kit for faculty and staff to complement the Building Strengths module. This online document is filled with resources and information to assist the learning for students with disabilities. Please download the document to your computer and keep it as a resource to refer to anytime. You can also print it and take it with you.
