Thursday 30 April 2020

Accessibility for all students

For: teachers and staff members who work with students
Host: Romke Biagioni & Marcel Melchers, Fenestra (Student Support Services)
Prior knowledge required? No

This webinar will cover how to make the university accessible for all students, including students with a disability. Topics include what to bear in mind and which possible solutions are available to promote accessibility.  The special focus in this webinar is on accessibility in digital education.

In 2018 Leiden University signed a letter of intent in order to implement the objectives of the UN Human Right Convention of persons with Disabilities. Guiding principles of this convention are autonomy, inclusivity, opportunities and accessibility for persons with a disability. Leiden University would like to offer an inclusive learning environment. We will provide you with information on the needs of students with disabilities and how we can create an inclusive environment. In this webinar extra attention will be given to digital accessibility

Teaching Support Webinars

The Centre for Innovation and ICLON are organising webinars to give support on remote teaching. The webinars will take place from 30 March and will continue into April. Webinars are scheduled daily and will provide information and answer questions on technical and didacital needs for remote teaching. They are open to all teachers and staff at Leiden University and are conducted in English.  

Webinars will be recorded in order to train Leiden University staff in the context of remote teaching. If you do not wish to be recorded, please do not turn on your camera during the class. After the webinar, the recording will be made available in the Video Portal. The recording will be available until 31 March 2022. These recordings can be used for further education if necessary.

Webinar Guidelines

To ensure a positive webinar experience for everyone, please pay attention to the following Guidelines: 

  • We will start at the designated time, no “Leids kwartiertje”. Coming in late means that you will miss out on the introduction and it will be harder to follow the story.
  • Please connect 5 minutes before the start time so that you can test your audio and webcam. Also check your browser: Kaltura Live Room works best in Chrome. 
  • Check your background for privacy. Make sure there is nothing visible that you don’t want shown. 
  • Are there other people in your home? Inform them you are in a call and you don’t want to be disturbed. 
  • Remember that the webinar will focus on pedagogy to support teachers. Other questions not answered may be submitted to ISSC helpdesk.

Do you have problems with audio or video?

  • Log out and log in again.
  • Consider using a different device (if you are on a phone, switch to a computer, or vise versa). 
  • Check your internet connection.
  • Check your browser. Kaltura Live Room works best in Chrome.
  • Contact ISSC helpdesk if the problem persists.
