We invite you to an upcoming session in the 2017-18 CIDER Sessions series on April 4, 2018. This free, online session will be a panel session featuring the UDL Committee of eCampus Alberta on the implementation of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) in online learning at Alberta postsecondary institutions.
Title: Panel Session: Implementation of Universal Design for Learning in Online Learning at Alberta Postsecondary Institutions
Universal design for learning (UDL) provides educational institutions and developers with a set of principles to use to ensure that the learning environment and instructional materials support the needs of the diverse range of students attending postsecondary education in traditional, blended and online courses. In the winter and spring of 2015 a set of UDL modules was developed by eCampus AB based on a proposal submitted by the UDL Advisory Committee of that organization. Committee members included individuals from Alberta colleges, a university and Polytechnic. In the fall of 2015 the modules were released to the Alberta PSE sector under a Creative Commons license. Advisory committee members continued to meet to discuss the roll out and promotion of the modules as well as the various uses to which the modules were being put at their institutions.
The panel for this session will provide an overview of the modules, the various ways in which the modules are being used at the four Alberta PSI’s and the user perspective (faculty, advisors, students) on the implementation of the modules.
Panel: Wendy Marusin, Manager of Learning Services, NAIT; Mark Schneider, Instructional Designer, NAIT; Kasey Fulton, Learning Designer, Red Deer College; Sandra Law, Learning Designer, Athabasca University; and Linda Raymond-Hagen, eLearning Curriculum Design Specialist, Keyano College.
