It is estimated that one in 10 people in Switzerland lives with a disability or chronic illness. This also applies to students. The University of Basel is committed to the inclusion of students and researchers with disabilities or chronic illnesses: they should be able to study and conduct research without obstacles. Accordingly, relevant guidelines are set down in several university documents. Moreover, accessibility is mandated by law.
Accessibility means that obstacles for people with disabilities or chronic illnesses are removed or compensated for. The University of Basel does this in a variety of ways, from wheelchair accessibility to inclusive assessment arrangements during exams. This guide will show you the fundamentals of how to use digital teaching methods and materials if there are students with disabilities in your group.
For other questions regarding accessibility, students as well as instructors are invited to contact the Students without Barriers (StoB) service point.
