“I need support!” – What teachers wish for barrier-free teaching
The evaluation of the data collected has now finally been completed. One of the central questions was “How can we support teachers in designing digital teaching for all? We wanted to find out what teachers want, what disturbs them, and what part support measures on our part can play.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all the teachers who participated in our survey! You helped us a lot to gain insight into the daily life of their digital teaching. With your help, we can now better assess barriers and also potentials and develop targeted material.
Teachers see their own need for further training. This is particularly in the areas of the design of accessible teaching and learning materials, digital accessibility in general and related to didactic aspects of accessibility.
Teachers would like support that goes beyond further training. This includes, for example, clear checklists, application examples and a collection of methods.
Finally, it should be mentioned here that both teachers and students recognize the advantage of flexibility that can arise through hybrid teaching. This can contribute to accessibility in teaching.
