Description

We recognize that quality course design is instrumental toward supporting student success. When an online learning environment is well designed, everyone achieves more, learns more, and is more equitably represented.

We recognize that many faculty do not necessarily know how to carry out accessible design. This course is intended to provide conceptual and theoretical framework and robust concrete practical strategies to guide faculty and instructional designers in building course material on Canvas according to the best practices of Universal Design for Learning to improve the accessibility and quality of learning experience for everyone.

Objectives

After completing the modules in this course, participants will be able to design engaging, effective, and accessible courses using the principles and practices of UDL mapped to the features of Canvas.


Target Audience: Faculty (K-12, Higher Ed), Instructional Designers, those looking for professional development opportunity, Canvas and/or UDL enthusiasts.


Course is offered by the University of Tennessee - Knoxville.
