    (Pt 1) Universal Design for Learning: Needed by Some, but Beneficial to All

    (Pt 1) Universal Design for Learning: Needed by Some, but Beneficial to All

    Dr. Jim Patton from the UT Austin Department of Special Education tells us how a Universal Design for Learning approach leads him to leverage teaching strategies that can accommodate the special needs of some students, but these same strategies can be useful to other learners. Using specific examples taken from his large-format Applied Learning and Development course, Dr. Patton groups these techniques into three categories - access, expression, and engagement.

    Improving Our Understanding of Child Psychopathology

    In our conversation with Dr. Sarah Kate Bearman, the assistant professor and child clinical psychologist in the Department of Educational Psychology talks with Dr. Rui Zeng about child psychopathology and how study of this topic can be used to further people’s understanding of emotional and behavioral problems in children. Specifically, she discusses how she uses her course Emotional and Behavioral Disorders in Children and Adolescents to help people understand the typical development of children’s mental health problems and ways to protect children from developing such problems. Through student-led cases, first account interviews, pop-culture moments, and interactive games, etc. her students leave her course with not only better knowledge about these disorders but different approaches to treatment that beyond medication.

    "Wow, That is So Fun!" Text-Based Classroom Discussion

    "Wow, That is So Fun!" Text-Based Classroom Discussion

    In our visit with Dr Diane Schallert, professor in the Department of Educational Psychology, we hear the story of the introduction of synchronous online chat to her courses in the mid 1990s. Her enthusiasm for learning is matched by her fascination for how people learn together both by talking out loud and through keyboards. Diane shares the important research she and her students have conducted into how typing changes the interactions in classrooms, allowing those students who may not have had an opportunity to speak up to gain a new voice. She includes tips for instructors - and others - who want to facilitate rich online conversations for learning.

    Be sure to listen until the end for a hopeful message about online politeness.
