Digital Accessibility in Teaching & Learning

In general, providing digital teaching is – not just in times during the corona pandemic – a valuable format for diverse, inclusive teaching. Particularly students with special needs can benefit from digital teaching. However, it also poses certain challenges for this target group, which is why we ask you, as teaching staff, to ensure the accessibility of digital teaching, even in this particular situation, despite the high level of stress that you all might be experiencing now. In the following, we are particularly concerned with accessibility for students with hearing or visual impairments, but also, for example, for students with limited mobility (especially with regards to taking notes), impairments due to ADHD, dyslexia, mental illness, or impairments due to medication.
