Enabling an inclusive learning environment using technology
2018/2019, Semester 1
Non-Faculty-Based Departments (Centre For Devt. Of Teaching & Learning)
Modular Credits: --
An inclusive learning environment supported by technology can create optimal conditions for accommodating the changing needs of a diverse student population. What needs to be considered when planning for technology use? How can we meet the needs of diverse learners with technology? These types of questions need to be answered before we can support inclusive practices in education. This workshop will enable you to critically examine the affordances of technologies using the universal design for learning (UDL) principles. We will learn how technological choices can affect the learning of today’s diverse student populations, and be able to refine teaching strategies and learning processes, and to be more inclusive in your teaching.
By the end of the workshop, participants should be able to:
recognise how technological choices can affect the learning of diverse learners; and,
examine the affordances of technologies using the universal design for learning (UDL) principles.
