The Center for Excellence in Learning and Teaching (CELT) will be hosting three discussions for participants of the online course Accessibility: Designing and Teaching Courses for All Learners. This course, and our discussions, will help University community members to develop the knowledge and skills needed to design learning experiences that promote inclusive learning environments.
During this six-week course, you’ll learn how to:
- Recognize and address challenges faced by students with disabilities related to access, success, and completion.
- Articulate faculty and staff roles in reducing barriers for students with disabilities.
- Apply the principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) in designing accessible learning experiences.
- Analyze the benefits of Backward Design when developing learning experiences.
- Use Section 508 standards and WCAG 2.0 guidelines to create accessible courses.
- Determine which tools and techniques are appropriate based on course content.
Prepare to engage in thoughtful discussions, participate in peer review assignments, take short self-check quizzes, watch videos, and explore relevant readings. You will also earn badges that recognize your mastery of these competencies.
