Digital Teaching Professional Framework

This module covers the DTPF component - F1 : Accessibility

  • Provide equitable access to appropriate digital technologies and resources, e.g. ensuring that all learners have access to the digital technologies used.
  • Select and use digital strategies which respond to the learner's digital context, e.g. contextual constraints to their technology use (e.g. availability, institutional restrictions - offender learning, work based learning), competences, expectations, attitudes, misconceptions and misuses.
  • Use digital technologies and strategies, e.g. assistive technologies, designed for learners' in need of special support (e.g. learners with physical or mental constraints; learners with learning disorders).
  • Consider and respond to potential accessibility issues when selecting, modifying or creating digital resources and to provide alternative or compensatory tools or approaches for learners with special needs.
  • Use design principles for increasing accessibility for the resources and digital environments used in teaching.
  • Continuously monitor and reflect on the suitability of the measures implemented to improve accessibility and adapt strategies accordingly.
