This course is part of a program modification of the Masters of Rehabilitation Counseling (MRC) degree program. The student learning outcomes and content of the class are updated to reflect current practice standards but remain essentially the same. For the program modification, the primary course designator is changing from RHAB to RCON.
Good afternoon. Thank you for providing in the syllabus an excellent description of technology requirements students will need in this course. Can you please add a statement in the Provisions for Course Content Interactions section a statement about ADA/accessibility of course content? I realize you might have not been asked to provide this in the past, but the university and faculty committees are paying much more attention to making courses accessible to students with disabilities. You can simply add to the Provisions for Course Content Interactions section (not in the syllabus) a statement regarding accessibility of course material. Here are a couple of model statements you can modify or use verbatim:
Statement 1The professor will meet with an instructional designer at the Center for Teaching Excellence (or department/college ID staff) to ensure that the course materials posted on Blackboard incorporate basic accessibility features. The course syllabus includes an accessibility statement that encourages students with disabilities to register with the Office of Student Disability services; should a student with a registered disability enroll in the course, the professor will work with the Office to make any additional accommodations appropriate to that student’s needs.
Statement 2All documents including syllabus and description of assignments will be provided in both accessible Word and PDF formats. For instance, documents will have proper headings, alternative text, and properly labeled links where necessary. Likewise PowerPoint slides will be made accessible by providing alternative text where necessary, ordering textboxes and other recommended ways of making PPTs accessible. Prerecorded lectures (if a part of the course) will be accompanied with transcripts in accessible Word and PDF formats.
Please call me directly at 777-0460 if you have any questions.
