Universal Design for Online Learning, a Teaching and Learning Circle--Will be offered Spring Semester

Wednesday, September 11, rescheduled, to be announced, in spring semester.

Led by Jeff Hiles, Instructional Designer, CTL.

When faculty put course materials online, they have a legal obligation to make sure students with disabilities can access that content in an equitable and timely manner. Accustom to having others provide accommodations for students in face-to-face classes, many faculty do not realize they have accessibility issues online and do not know what to do about it. In the first three of five monthly sessions, you'll take inventory of your courses' barriers and find ways to fix them. In sessions four and five, we'll go beyond technical issues and explore how Universal Design concepts help us better serve a wide variety of students. Participants will be asked to review background materials before we meet each month so we can use our face-to-face time to discuss concepts and work on our real-world challenges.
