As a prelude to the Pre-college Conference, the Provost’s Office is offering a unique virtual workshop, Reach Everyone and Teach Everyone with Universal Design for Learning.
When: August 10, 10:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.
Who: Limited to the first 30 registrants - Full but will be recorded
This webinar will introduce you to Universal Design for Learning in higher education (CAST, 2014). The workshop will demonstrate how to implement UDL in the design of your course and service interactions, creating spaces for best teaching and support practices to take place—in the classroom and beyond.
To help make educational materials and practices inclusive and useful for all learners, this interactive webinar will radically reflect on how instructors can adopt the Universal Design for Learning to create learning interactions that provide students with more time for study and practice in their busy days and broaden focus beyond just learners with disabilities toward a larger ease-of-use/general-inclusion framework.
By attending this webinar presentation, you will be able to
incorporate Universal Design for Learning (UDL) elements into your courses,
design/retrofit existing course components using UDL principles,
expand your institution’s use of UDL through five targeted, use-them-tomorrow techniques.
This webinar uses active-learning techniques and provides use-them-now resources for participants. The framework for the webinar will serve as a model for participants to re-frame accessibility and inclusion conversations in their day-to-day environments and groups.
Workshop Facilitator: Thomas J. Tobin is the Program Area Director for Distance Teaching & Learning on the Learning Design, Development, & Innovation (LDDI) team at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, as well as an internationally recognized speaker and author on topics related to quality in technology-mediated education, especially copyright, evaluation of teaching practice, academic integrity, and accessibility/universal design for learning. He is the author of several books including: Reach Everyone, Teach Everyone: Universal Design for Learning in Higher Education (2018) with Kirsten Behling.
Participants who attend the live workshop will receive $100 in professional development funds. The link to the virtual event will be sent out a few days prior to the workshop.
