Monday, November 07 | 2:00PM–4:00PM
Session Type: Professional Development
In this session, we will share the University of Central Florida's Accessibility Support Model for online courses that was designed to provide a scalable and systematic approach to creating accessible online courses. This model consists of several strategies one of which is educating faculty on how to apply Universal Design for Learning principles to the design of their online courses. We will also share the accommodations work flow that was implemented as part of this process and showcase strategies and resources that we have implemented to empower faculty to create accessible course materials and support diverse learning styles including just in time online resources as well as the Universal Design Online Content Inspection Tool (UDOIT).
