More and more attention is being placed on meeting the needs of students with diverse abilities. Educators are looking more closely at inclusive classroom goals and how to accomplish them without adding significant additional time and effort to building online and in classroom curriculum.
The changes to Disabled Students’ Allowance (DSA) provision means English universities need to be ready and able to support learners by September 2016.
In this 60 minute webinar hosted by JoAnna Hunt, Accessibility Manager at Blackboard you will get an overview of inclusive classrooms, and outline the benefits and challenges faced in implementing them. We will also help you towards achieving inclusivity and best practice for all learners through your online and face to face classrooms and provide a practical framework to:
Assess your pedagogy
Review your existing content
Evaluate your institution's technology
“Learning platforms offer many inclusion benefits….. however, if the learning platform is not accessible it will create a barrier to access rather than a benefit.” Joint Information Services Committee (Jisc)
This webinar is aimed at academics, course designers, e-learning teams as well as digital student champions/ambassadors, student’s union and policy makers and those who are involved in making courses accessible for all.
