Accessibility for Course Content
Accessibility, as it relates to e-learning, means that your e-learning course should be accessible to a variety of users–for example, learners with disabilities, the aging population, and those for whom English is a second language. Simply put, this means that information must be provided in a format that does not rely on a single sense or ability.
By providing support for various educational technology solutions, the Koehler Center is focused on responding to the present needs of instructors, as well as keeping the TCU community informed of new educational possibilities.
Insights magazine is the Koehler Center’s biannual electronic publication. It features articles written by faculty and instructional staff highlighting teaching innovation, student engagement, and professional development. It also showcases upcoming Koehler Center events, workshops, and speakers.
Koehler Center Library
The Koehler Center houses a collection of current books and journals on subjects such as active learning, online learning, course development, and the scholarship of teaching and learning.
New to TCU
The New to TCU pages offer helpful information if you are new to campus (ID Card, Parking, WiFi), information about specific campus services (Shuttle Services, Classroom Technology Introduction, Post Office), and resources to help you prepare to teach (Syllabus Template, Mandatory Policies, Syllabus Rubric).
We have several syllabus templates available depending on the course level and how the class is offered as well as a syllabus rubric to assess your current syllabi.
TCU Chairs Resources
This website offers support for TCU department chairs and program directors, providing information on policy and procedure, easy access to administrative forms, links to “best practice” resources, and information on training sessions and meetings of the Chairs Council.
