Adaptations of the educational process

Educational process adaptations are modifications in the course of studies which give the student an opportunity to fulfil his/her academic obligations while taking into account the student's health condition and the specific substantive requirements of a given university programme. They are designed to be a support in being an independent university student.

The accommodations are suggested by an educational advisor after a one-on-one meeting with the student and his/her submission of medical documentation in accordance with 7 educational support principles. 

The accommodations are grantem upon the undergarduate/doctoral student's request in compliance with relevant procedures in force.

Some examples of accommodations related to course meetings and lectures:

  • The student may receive educational materials from the teachers;
  • The student may record course meeting/lectures.

 

Some examples of accommodations related to course completion assignments/tests and examinations:

  • Extending their duration;
  • Spreading examinations over time during the end-of-term session; 
  • The student may sit written examinations at a PC;
  • The student's minor spelling errors (like confusing the letter sequence or missing single letters) may be disregarded in tasks which are not aimed at checking spelling rules.

The DSS can cooperate with teachers in order to agree as to the best educational strategies so that courses can be delivered in an accessible format. Such cooperation could cover:

  • Notifying the teachers of the accommodations granted to the student
  • Providing teaching tips concerning ways and methods of course and examination preparation taking into account the needs of students with specific reading and writing difficulties.
  • Delivering consultations and training for teachers in methods of supporting students with specific reading and writing difficulties.
