This is a quick checklist to use when designing a syllabus and ensuring its accessibility. While the syllabus AUDIT gives a more comprehensive dissection of a syllabus, this seems like a helpful tool for someone who understands the AUDIT and just needs a quick checklist to refer to before finalizing any syllabi.

I think this is a great tool for faculty to use to check the accessibility of their syllabus. I would recommend this to all faculty to use when making their syllabus.

This is a great resource for an aspect of a class that has significant importance. The syllabus outlines the course and often has many valuable resources within. Creating an accessible syllabus with the help of this checklist will ensure that the student has the resources they need to succeed.

The syllabus for a class is one of the most important documents to start off the course. They outline everything you need to know, so ensuring it is accessible for anyone and everyone is crucial. This checklist is a great way to do so.
