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
When you receive an accommodation request, consider it an invitation to make your course more accessible in the first place. The resulting changes to your course may benefit all students, not only those who have accommodations. 4/5
For example, Jeff mentions:
- material presented in different formats on the syllabus
- media with closed captioning
- open book, online exams, that must be completed in a 3 hour period any time during a given week
- student driven deadlines. 5/5
