Creating accessible instructional content and assessments can be challenging for any course, but STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) courses requiring the use of complex mathematical equations, scientific formulas, or special symbols can make the challenges more difficult. Some of these challenges require subject-specific solutions.
On this page, our goal is simply to point KSU STEM faculty to external articles, modules, training, and resources that are available. We plan to continue updating this page, so if there are resources you have found helpful, or something you would like us to help you find, please let us know through our General Inquiry form.
