This conversation will be a starting place for thinking through how to implement inclusive pedagogy and learner-centered practices into your syllabus. We will discuss strategies for producing a learner-centered syllabus; as well as, the importance of establishing clear expectations and goals, and building rapport and community in your class.
The teaching-learning process is an inherently social act. Throughout the learning process students interact with the instructor, their peers and the course content, often simultaneously in a classroom setting. All of these interactions help shape their success in the course.
This conversation will discuss the 10 basic strategies for creating accessible course content. Participants will explore the Quality Matters framework, specific approaches to address accessibility/usability and begin to build a timeline for implementing these changes. 'How to' resources will be provided.
