How can instructors create inclusive classrooms for students with disabilities? What resources exist to help instructors in this regard? This workshop attempts to answer these questions. Featuring presenters from Disability Services, the Canadian Mental Health Association, and the Learning Disabilities Association of Saskatchewan, this workshop considers a number of factors, including the University of Saskatchewan's population of students with disabilities, the social model of disability, and diverse and inclusive teaching strategies. Faculty members, administrators, and graduate student teachers are welcome to attend.

Your course syllabi can be very important to the students in your classes, providing them with information on assignments, quizzes and exams, your office hours and other valuable information about the class. But, your syllabus can also show students about who you are as a person and an instructor through its format and tone.
The University of Saskatchewan Academic Courses Policy details the requirements of what should be included in every syllabus. Based on this policy and with consultations from a variety of stakeholders across the institution, the U of S Instructional Design Group created a syllabus template and accompanying guide.
