Supporting Student Success through Inclusive Design: From Content to Curriculum

March 21, 2019, 12:00pm to 2:00pm
Intended audience: 
Academic Support Staff, Faculty, Graduate Students, Instructors

Accessible content authoring is not only essential for students who use assistive technologies, but it also results in more usable, flexible content that can adapt to diverse student needs and devices. During the workshop, we’ll discuss some of the key terms and research around inclusive learning and Universal Design for Learning (UDL), and the different ways Ally’s alternative formats and instructor feedback help support those learning goals. Participants will then form teams and work on a series of accessibility and UDL challenges, focused around content authoring, content remediation, multimodal literacy, and curriculum design. At the conclusion of the workshop, each participant will leave with one strategy or idea to make their learning environment more inclusive for all their learners.  

Lunch will be provided for those who RSVP by March 15.

Presenter: 
John Scott, Ph.D.
