Have you ever wondered what you need to know about teaching blind and visually impaired students? Have you ever wanted to revise your classroom activities and materials to maximize student learning?
These two questions are more related than you might think.
The offices of Faculty Development, Diversity and Inclusion, Disability Services, and Faculty Technology Services (CTMI) invite you to join in a discussion of universal design and how it benefits all learners, including students who are blind and visually impaired.
We will examine the concept of universal design for the classroom and consider specific examples of its implementation; discuss disability etiquette; explore what makes a learning resource accessible to blind students; and learn how to use existing technology to make materials accessible.
Lunch will be served.
Presented by: Chi Kim (Music Therapy), Josh Crary (Diversity and Inclusion), Bob Mulvey (Disability Services), and Marcus Hoige (Faculty Technology Services)
