Developments in Accessibility: Training and Institutional Data Use

Wednesday, February 03 | 2:45PM–3:30PM
Session Type: Professional Development
While we are required to work within the constraints of the LMS, we are not confined to creating a course that is accessible to all learners. As Pittman and Heiselt (2014) have identified, the areas of disability affected within the online environment include the use of mobility, auditory, visual, and cognitive processes. Through the use of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and Universal Instructional Design (UID) principals, the presentation will demonstrate how instructional practices and examples of learning can readily reconfigure any online course to allow accessible teaching and learning for all.

OUTCOMES: Identify to what extent the teaching and learning objectives of your course are UDL-proof * Describe how to reconfigure any online course to be accessible * Create a plan to transform a current online course through UID
