DEALING WITH STUDENT ISSUES

STUDENTS WITH ACCOMMODATIONS
 

  • The Office of the Registrar and Student Services works closely with the University of Toronto's Accessibility Services to implement recommended accommodations for students with a disability.
     
  • The term "accommodation" refers to any service, equipment, or special arrangement that is put in place to support students with a documented disability that affects their ability to function in an academic or practicum setting.
     
  • When a student in your course has registered with Accessibility Services and requires an accomodation in your course, you will be notified by Accessibilty Services directly.

 

Extensions on Assignments - Students with Disabilities

  • For disability-related extensions or requests for consideration for illness or information, students must complete relevant forms and meet with relevant counsellors at the Accessibility & Disability Services Centre.

 

ASKING FOR EXTRA MARKS
 

Tips:

  • Be firm and be fair. Listen to the student, re-check your marking, but base the mark only on their performance and not their needs.
     
  • If needed, direct them to the Program Coordinator
     
  • You may want to reference the APHD Policy for Academic Appeals 
    • The policy above outlines APHD-specific policy which reflects the SGS Policy. The steps include:
      1. Informal Appeal (discussion with instructor and associate chair/graduate coordinator
      2. Department Appeal
      3. Appeal to GAAB
      4. Governing Council Appeal

STUDENTS ATTENDING YOUR COURSE WHO ARE NOT ENROLLED
 

  • Students may audit your APHD course based on the instructor's discretion, if:
    • There is room in the course
    • It does not take away from students who are enrolled in the course

       
  • It is useful to check with your Program Coordinator when making this decision

STUDENT ABSENCES: RELIGIOUS HOLIDAYS AND ACCOMMODATIONS
 

  • No student should suffer academic penalty because of the observance of their faith.
     
  • Every effort should be made to avoid scheduling tests, examinations or other compulsory activities during religious holidays.
     
  • List of dates: http://uoft.me/religiousaccommodation
     
  • Students have a responsibility to alert members of the teaching staff in a timely fashion to upcoming religious observances and anticipated absences.
