Part 4: Fall 2016 Labs
Last week’s Active Teaching Lab was about making life better for all your students (and yourself) through Universal Design. Also known as inclusivedesign, Universal Design refers to broad-spectrum ideas meant to produce buildings, products and environments that are inherently accessible to older people, people without disabilities, and people with disabilities. Ruben Mota and Mike Mohr from the McBurney Disability Resource Center shared some simple tips and tricks for doing it well in the online spaces.
- Not just for people with disabilities, UDL habits are a good way for disorganized instructors to get more organized (hint: your students will appreciate it too!)
- Although it often takes some practice and work to get started, once you establish the basic habits of Universal Design for Learning, it gets much easier.
- It’s required by law.
Active Teaching Labs are held every Friday from 8:30-9:30am in room 120, Middleton Building. Check out the upcoming labs or read the recaps from past labs.
