Become a Blackboard Jedi: Move Students with Only Your Mind and Universal Design for Learning

Presented by: Thomas Tobin Director of Curriculum and Programming at University of Wisconsin-Madison

To help make educational materials and practices inclusive for all learners, this interactive session radically reflects on how to motivate and inspire faculty members and course designers to adopt Universal Design for Learning: broaden the focus away from learners with disabilities and toward a larger ease-of-use/general diversity framework.

The theoretical basis of this session from the author of Reach Everyone, Teach Everyone: UDL in Higher Education (2018) is Universal Design for Learning (UDL), especially as newly revised for higher ed (CAST, 2018). The session goal is to inspire implementation of UDL in program assessment, policy development, technology selection, course design, and teaching practices--via achievements that can be attained in the next 20 minutes, 20 days, and 20 months (Tobin, 2014). Recent research suggests that coaching those who train faculty members see better adoption rates of UDL principles across all courses (CAST, 2014; DO-IT, 2015).
