Basic recommendations

Put course content on-line to allow students who have missed class an opportunity to access the information Use peer mentoring, group discussions, and cooperative learning and limit lecturing Using guided notes so students are listening and trying to gain understanding rather than copying notes Update course materials based on current events and student demands Provide a syllabus that clearly identifies course requirements, accommodation statement and due dates Vary instructional methods, provide illustrations, handouts, auditory and visual aids Clarify instructions, ask for questions, and repeat or give additional examples

Instructional Materials Provide information in multiple formats, including text, graphics, audio and video. Make handouts available prior to class Create a glossary of terms Develop a list of FAQ Post lectures online

Teaching Methods Activate Background Knowledge Highlight key concepts Make learning active Use technology to enrich learning Represent ideas graphically Use quiz tools Use clickers or little white boards Use smart boards

Assessment Methods Create assessments from the objectives Create alternatives to traditional tests Provide instructions in written and verbal formats Use a minute papers, quick surveys of the class and exit questions Relate a new topic to one already learned or a real-life example Allow a student to tape record lectures, have another student provide notes or provide a copy of your notes Allow the student to show their knowledge through different ways rather than paper and pencil assignments Use of adaptive technology Develop study guides
