We welcome your feedback on the 2022-27 DE Plan draft

Over 85 of your amazing colleagues have contributed to the 2022-2027 DE Plan draft, and now we welcome your thoughts and comments. Please take a look and add your comments directly to the Google Doc and the Google Spreadsheet.

The document is quite long, so if your time is limited, take a look at the summary and priorities. If one of your areas of expertise aligns with one or more of the sections of the body, we would deeply appreciate your input on that section or those sections in particular.

Please post your comments by Friday 5/6 so that we get started revising. It will be so helpful for the next DE Coordinator to have this plan in place.

Thank you for taking the time to help us shape the best DE Plan & the best DE Program possible for our campus!

Applying Digital Accessibility, Let's make our online classes accessible. Together.

NEW TRAINING: Let’s make our classes accessible. Together.

Americans with Disability Act (ADA) is a Federal law that applies to all digital resources that we create. Regardless of the course delivery mode or the type of content we create, we are required by law to ensure that all of our digital resources are accessible to all of our students.

Planning to update your course(s) this summer to ensure accessibility? Join us from July 11 to August 5 (4 weeks) and have “fun” while updating your digital content. Applying Digital Accessibility is a new 4-week PD, developed and facilitated by instructional designers and instructional faculty volunteers from across the UH System. Submit your application now before the seats fill up.

Applying Digital Accessibility will be hands-on to help you:

  • Implement digital accessibility in Laulima
  • Create/convert to accessible resources in Word, Google Docs, and PDFs
  • Implement digital accessibility in audio and videos.

The program is entirely online and will include one synchronous online meeting each Monday morning from 10 am to noon. We recommend selecting one of the courses that you teach, to remediate/practice on during this PD, as we will be collectively applying different ADA rules each week.

📆 Apply by June 15, 2022

Applicants will be notified of their acceptance by June 22.
