Universal design can help us create the flexibility, portability, and availability we need to ensure that the widest variety of learners can both access and enjoy learning. While options like audio books, mobile devices, captions and PDF files may seem like a mere convenience, for some they are key to actively participating in educational opportunities. During this faculty inquiry group, participants will learn about universal design for learning, examine case studies of its implementation, and develop a plan for how to incorporate the framework into their instruction. Participants will also experience firsthand the technology that students with disabilities use to access information, prepare assignments, and complete assessments. They will discuss the impact of these technologies on choices for instruction such as required course technology, language used in verbal and written communications and required external resources. This Faculty Inquiry Group meets 6 times for 60-minutes per session beginning Sept 19th.
