Canvas Accessibility Program

Canvas Accessibility Faculty Advocate Program

Dates: May 2 - June 17, 2022
Registration Deadline: Friday, April 22, by 5pm
Stipend: $350 (disbursed Spring 2022)

Program Description: Faculty advocates will be selected by ATS to participate in the Canvas Accessibility Faculty Advocate Program. The purpose of this program is to improve accessibility awareness on campus and in the classroom and to promote student success. In doing so, the accessibility faculty advocates will be equipped with professional development, tools, resources, and best practices to improve and implement accessibility so that they can be a knowledgeable resource to colleagues, colleges, and departments.

Training will take place in the Canvas learning management system and therefore, faculty who are familiar with technical and pedagogical features in Canvas and know how to navigate Canvas fully are encouraged to apply.

As early adopters of Canvas accessibility, we encourage faculty to spread awareness and speak at department meetings about their work in the accessibility advocate program.
