UDL and Accessibility Think TankWed, 11/4/2015 | 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Join us in a guided discussion as we share and learn how to maximize access, engagement, and student success in online courses. For this session, the topic will be Building Expertise in UDL/Accessibility and will focus on gathering feedback, ideas, solutions, challenges, and concerns to drive upcoming trainings created in collaboration between ODEE, OCIO, and the Web Accessibility Center.
Presenters are also available to answer questions regarding UDL integration into course development and delivery, shared resources, accessibility challenges and solutions, learning technology, and more. This community includes web accessibility experts, faculty, OSU librarians, instructional designers, and many others from across Ohio State. For more info please visit the community for Universal Design and Accessibility.
Why are we getting together?
Access for students is a key component of our mission as a university. In addition, lawsuits in higher education are pointing toward the need for a high level of urgency in designing/teaching with accessibility in mind. Across campus we are facing similar challenges, wins, problems, solutions, and questions as it relates to accessibility and Universal Design for Learning. The more we can connect with one another the more we can continue to grow, improve, and lead in this area with confidence.
What is the format?
The Think Tanks are designed to be informal and to be focused around meaningful dialogue around topics related to UDL and accessibility from a variety of perspectives across campus. Each session will focus on one key topic (chosen by the community), and will also allow time for timely or urgent questions.
Join us in-person in 115 Stillman Hall or virtually through CarmenConnect
