Universal Design for Learning; Teaching in a pandemic

I'm not sure why (must have signed up a long time ago) but I periodically get a newsletter from Contact North/ Contact Nord (a non-profit corporation funded by the Government of Ontario). The latest one included a few things I thought worth passing on:
- This article describes a course Accessible Media production, that uses Univeral Design for Learning principles in its own design, as well as teaching students about its principles. The article includes some links about inclusive learninhg design:
- They recommend: Martin, B., & Hanington, B. (Eds). (2019). Universal methods of design – 125 ways to research complex problems, develop innovative ideas and design effective solutions. Beverly, MA: Rockport Publishing.
- They link to a report which summarises results from 3 substantial surveys of online teaching experiences in the USA at tertiary level: Johnson, N., Seaman, J & Veletsianos, G. (2021). Teaching During a Pandemic: Spring Transition, Fall Continuation, Winter Evaluation. Bay View Analytics.
