TLC Workshop: Accessibility

Tuesday, October 31, 2017 | 10:30a-12:30p
Room 9204
with Jessica Murray and Louis Olander

While many instructors think of accessibility in relation to disability, accessible course design benefits all students. In this workshop, we will investigate what it means to create accessible classes, and consider the challenges and opportunities involved in designing and delivering learning experiences that are inclusive of all students.

In particular, we will discuss making course materials accessible, digital accessibility, and Universal Design for Learning (UDL), and consider strategies for shaping syllabi, lesson plans, assignments, and assessment with questions of access in mind.

Participants are encouraged to bring a lesson plan or assignment they’d like to make more accessible, which we can workshop with the group.
