Accessibility and Universal Design for Learning Workshop
Thursday, November, 15 1-2 EST
offered by Learning House
“Accessibility” in its broadest sense isn’t solely about designing with the needs of students with disabilities in mind, but also providing options for your instructional materials and flexibility in your assessment instructions, which can address both disabilities as well as learning preferences. In this session, we’ll explore what the law dictates about the design of online courses and discuss how designing your course with the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework in mind can help you kill two birds with one stone.

Read Mark’s article to find out why Paperpile vs. the many other reference management products and why it might be a great product for you.
