Inspired by the Peer Associates program, the Instructional Accessibility Group (IAG) within the CTLD wishes to facilitate a small cohort of faculty to work on individual accessibility projects over one semester to be shared with the cohort and their departments.

The IAG anticipates this work to be collaborative in which cohort members and the IAG all learn and share resources with each other. As the IAG cannot feasibly be subject matter experts (SMEs) for every discipline, the cohort will assist the IAG in meeting faculty needs with department-specific accessibility resources and allows faculty to receive individualized guidance on proactive accessibility for their content area.

Time Commitment, Stipend, and Schedule

Faculty commit to several meetings during one semester in addition to individual work time. The time commitment would be roughly equivalent to 1 credit hour for one semester and upon completion with a deliverable will receive a stipend of $800.

Meetings will include options for both in-person and remote attendance.

Areas of Responsibility

  • Learn–Accessibility Cohort gains in–depth knowledge about proactive accessibility techniques and the services and guides available from the IAG and learning from fellow cohort members.
  • Develop – Each member selects a specific proactive instructional accessibility project to research and add expertise to supplement the body of knowledge available for MSU Denver faculty.
  • Connect – Cohort members share insights from their departments and subject matter to guide IAG initiatives and resources and become a proactive accessibility advocate within their department. Members will be more comfortable as an initial point-of-contact for departmental colleagues for accessibility questions and referrals to the IAG.
  • Report – Cohort members write or record a final summary.
  • Disseminate – Cohort members present summary of their project and advocacy status to department colleagues at a department meeting, seminar, or similar.
