Universal Design and Online Education: Ensuring Access and Engagement for All Students
Venue: Online Webcast
|Event Date/Time: Jan 28, 2011|
Course management systems can provide the opportunity for students with physical and sensory disabilities to enroll and excel in online programs. However, if the technology and course management systems do not meet accessibility guidelines, institutions are potentially preventing one in five prospective and current students from being able to succeed in courses and programs.
Join us as we discuss steps for enhancing the education of every student by increasing online course and program accessibility. This session highlights proactive strategies for utilizing Universal Design for Learning (UDL) to address and overcome barriers to learning. Our instructors will also share current and emerging practices being utilized within Drexel University and other institutions.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
This webcast is most appropriate for instructional designers and academic leaders who are interested in increasing accessibility and support for students with disabilities.
