I'm on my rant mode. Ts, if sending work work home via Google Docs, please do not use tables. Many parents are accessing these lessons with their mobile phones and tables are not mobile-friendly. #Thinkopen
Also don't introduce new tech & give an assignment at the same time. Familiarity w/ the tech IS the assignment. Day 1 Log in and share how you are doing. Day 2 Share how you are doing & Try new feature. Day 3 Share how you are doing & share if you understand this assignment...
If you are receiving a ton of questions or critical comments about something you assigned, assume that your instructions are too complicated, not that people aren't reading what you wrote. #DesignTeaching #UDL

1/So there was lots of talk at @AACNursing #AACNdoc20 re: #Nursing #PhD pipeline, getting folx esp prelicensure students ‘excited’ about #nursingscience & the #BStoPhD

I totally revamped our #nursingresearch & #innovation course @UMassAmherst last fall to do just that

2/ I told the Asst Dean when I took it on that regardless of the learning objectives for the course I had only 1 GOAL:

That by the end of the semester, these students would be EXCITED!-or at very least, just a little bit CURIOUS-about a career in #nursingscience & #innovation
3/ A note about context: This was a course of ~85 Accel BS students, taught in an urban campus that is geographically ~40mins drive from main @UMassAmherst campus, in the . The classroom assigned had no windows. Class ran 8am-1030am Weds, before more courses. I say this b/c....

I’ve long been at odds with learning outcomes. As a practice, they assume: 1. That a student is missing knowledge or skills; 2. That a teacher knows what the student is missing; 3. The relationship between the teacher and student is one of depositor and receptacle. #digped
In the banking model of education “knowledge is a gift bestowed by those who consider themselves knowledgeable upon those whom they consider to know nothing.” (Freire) This model makes learning outcomes not only desirable, but necessary.
Learning outcomes presume knowledge that can be defined, skills that have achievable levels of mastery (like rungs on a ladder), and too often also imply a route for reaching them that is predictable and stable enough for anyone to tread it.

1/ #UDL is a framework to help us extend learning to all students which addresses learner variability. It's also important to consider that we as humans are feeling machines that think, not the other way around.
2/ We need to design learning environments that support all students, and further we need to understand who our students are, where our students are coming from, and what our students are going through

Today I heard Dr. @jeffpreston of @kingsatwestern speak about #UDL, #HigherEd & the societal model for disability. With this model, focus interventions on society rather than on impairment - need policy, environment, and attitudinal change. Great talk Jeff! 1/5
Jeff asked us to consider the cause of disability
- is it impairment, illness, sickness? or
- is it inaccessibility and discrimination? 2/5
There ought to be more of a team effort around #UDL - students, faculty, & staff. If we work to incl. UDL principles, it will send msg to students, which is needed given the social aspects of uni & that a lot of learning happens outside of class (groupwork, extra-curriculars) 3/5
