2016 Keynote: "Access and Technology: Promises and Pitfalls in Post-Secondary Education"

What do you do when, two weeks into the semester, you are informed that a student with vision impairment will be adding your class? When you learn that a student who is hard-of-hearing will be taking your on-line course? When you learn that a veteran who lost both arms in Iraq is returning to school and will be taking your Drawing 1 class? When in the fifth week of the semester (after the first quiz) three students ask for accommodations due to their learning disabilities? This keynote will increase your awareness of best practices and strategies to design an accessible college experience from the ground up.

Attendees will be able to:

  • Define universal design (UD) and universal design for learning (UDL)
  • Describe the relationship between UDL, accessibility, and the use of technology in post-secondary instruction
  • List three reasons for incorporating the principles of UDL in post-secondary instruction
  • Identify two new strategies to employ "on Monday"
