Dimitra's Experience

Attended Canvas Accessibility

The first project that I worked on with the Access Team involved ensuring that my course setup, learning materials and documents are accessible to all students. While I have worked with various learning platforms, I am a new addition to Rice. I have been impressed by the Access Team’s commitment to promoting diversity: they have provided helpful comments on how to structure my course in a way that is engaging to all students. We meticulously reviewed my syllabi for any concerns in terms of accessibility and he patiently addressed all my questions.
The second project that they contributed to and continue to assist with is educating my TAs and me with regards to designing lectures that are accessible to all students. We learned how to design PowerPoints for our lectures, common pitfalls and how to avoid them while we teach.
