 New Resources for AccessibleCampus.ca: Making "Practical Spaces" Accessible

We are pleased to share that new resources that focus on making “practical spaces” accessible have been posted to the AccessibleCampus.ca website!

A “practical space” is a learning environment where students can engage in active learning and demonstrate, through hands-on activities, the understanding of the practical components of a given discipline. In this paper, Understanding Accessibility in Practical Space Learning Environments Across Disciplines, the National Educational Association of Disabled Students (NEADS) highlights general principles of accessibility using detailed, field-specific examples that include occupational and physical therapy locations, art and design studios, and archival spaces.
