How to Reach (Almost) All Learners with Universal Design for Learning
As technology-mediated learning becomes part of the new normal across college and university curricula, it’s important to interact with students in a way that supports their continued learning, shows compassion and flexibility for varied circumstances, and fits within existing time and prep demands.

This webinar shares low-effort “do-them-right-now” design techniques that reduce student anxiety and pressure, reduce your instructor colleagues’ frustrations (and your own), and allow you to focus on engaging student interactions, especially for those living in small, rural, remote and Indigenous communities.

Key Takeaways

This interactive webinar session explores techniques and strategies backed by neuroscience research that shows how colleges and universities can lower barriers (and why they should) for students, faculty and instructors. They include:

• Access to materials, interactions and people (in the course and beyond)
• Assessment techniques: testing, grades and feedback
• Engagement strategies that make students more likely to stick with their studies despite the challenges
