One Small Change Can Make a Big Impact: Universal Design Benefits All Students
Thursday June 4, 1:00 – 2:00 pm Central Time/2:00 – 3:00 pm Eastern Time via Zoom.
Presented by Laura Traynor (Pharmacy) and Susan Gallanis (CELT)
This session is for faculty. The presenters will introduce the concept and principles behind Universal Design and how making small changes can positively impact all students in a course. A new Blackboard tool that enhances Universal Design, Ally, will be introduced. Ally assists faculty in developing a course that benefits all types of learners.
Best Practices for Poly-synchronous Teaching (in-person students and Zoom students at the same time)
Thursday July 23, 3:00 – 4:00 pm Central/4:00 – 5:00 pm Eastern
Instruction for traditional undergraduate and graduate courses that would normally be fully in-person will be different in Fall 2020 as we use social distancing. In most classes, not all the students will be able to fit in the classroom at the same time; one method to address this problem is to have those students who cannot be present physically join in that lesson via Zoom at the same time the lesson is being delivered.
This is a high tech set up and needs an instructor who is thinking about engaging both groups of students throughout the class period.
