    UDL University with Nicole Brewer, Randy Laist, and Dana Sheehan

    UDL University with Nicole Brewer, Randy Laist, and Dana Sheehan

    In this episode we talk about how UDL has transformed their teaching and hear several examples of how to leverage the diversity of learners for everyone’s gain. I also think it is a great encouragement to hear how UDL has been applied in a faculty learning community first, and then across the entire curriculum.

    Graphic Design for Course Creators with Dawn DiPeri

    Graphic Design for Course Creators with Dawn DiPeri

    Today we talk about her new book Graphic Design for Course Creators with a particular focus on accessibility and graphic design. Dawn saw the need for this book and set about to write and I am so glad she did! She incorporates Universal Design for Learning guidelines but goes even further to incorporate graphic design principles to help instructors be as clear as possible for our students. If you have any part of your course that exists online, even if you aren’t fully teaching online, you will gain some valuable insights from this conversation.
