OTP: Designing Courses with Care: Did I Miss Any Student in My Online Course?
October 19 at 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm
The UBC Okanagan Centre for Teaching and Learning is proud to promote the UBC Vancouver Centre for Teaching, Learning and Technology Online Teaching Program (OTP) events to our Okanagan instructors.
Supporting the student learning experience when using online course materials starts with the visual design and structure of the course and materials (Eom & Ashill, 2016; Reyna, 2013; Yang & Durrington, 2010). As there are several fields of research that provide guidelines or recommendations for achieving these goals, determining where to begin can be confusing. In this session we will introduce a course set-up checklist that combines research from the fields of Universal Design for Learning (UDL), student wellbeing practices, and accessibility. Applying these techniques will help you to create online courses and materials that are easy to navigate, emphasize consistency across course materials, encourage safe and supportive learning environments, and are accessible to all students.
