Accessibility at UOIT
By making our campus accessible to those with disabilities, we are improving the learning and working environment for students, faculty, staff and visitors.
If you have a disability and require information from UOIT in an alternative format, please call 905.721.8668 ext. 5622
Under the new Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), the government is moving to a fully accessible Ontario by 2025. At UOIT, this means our buildings, our policies and our learning environment must be accessible as possible in the near future. Although UOIT has already made significant progress in this area, this website will provide the information, tutorials and examples to assist those on campus with further improvements to accessibility.
Universal design for learning
Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is not just a method of accommodating students who have a disability – it goes far beyond that. It incorporates a variety of strategies and techniques that enable all students to learn and express their learning using an array of methods. One size does not fit all and UDL encourages flexibility in delivery and design of learning so that all students benefit.
