Academic Accommodations: Finding Middle Ground

September 21, 2023
1:00 PM EDT - 2:00 PM EDT

Feelings about accommodations can sometimes determine our responses. Research shows that when faculty are uncertain about what to do (or are unsure that what they’re doing is “right”) they may over-accommodate (think: infinite extensions) or under-accommodate (think: blanket “no extensions” course policies). This workshop drills down into “icky” feelings of uncertainty, frustration, fear, etc., that often go unspoken around accommodations, and provides guidance for finding the middle ground of accommodating students. Participants will also learn strategies to reduce the need for accommodations overall in their courses.
