Universal Design: Five Steps to Make Your Course Accessible

1:00 p.m. 2:00 p.m.
1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. | E. H. Butler Library 181B

Accessibility is about increasing learning for any and all students. Small changes to existing courses can eliminate barriers and provide all students with more equitable opportunities to learn and to demonstrate their learning.

Receive a variety of protocols and strategies for improving access to your course content by examining assumptions and making slight modifications to methods and practices. Lectures, exams, group work -- you can make just about any course component more accessible once your know how to evaluate it.

After participating in this webinar you will be able to:

  • Systematically evaluate courses to identify potential barriers to student learning or demonstration of learning
  • Identify two or three assumptions that could be barriers to learning
  • Determine what kind of learners might be challenged by those assumptions
  • Recognize three or four simple changes to make teaching more accessible
  • Understand how to implement those changes for immediate improvement
