“Creating Inclusive Learning Opportunities”

Wednesday, Nov. 8

Sheryl Burgstahler, a national leader in inclusive teaching, will lead this presentation. She will leverage her extensive expertise in creating inclusive and accessible educational experiences through the use of technology. She will help empower participants with the skills and knowledge to implement the Universal Design for Learning framework and explain how to apply Web Content Accessibility Guidelines to ensure digital content can be accessed by all learners. 

Register for Burgstahler’s workshop.


Instructors who are teaching an online or hybrid course are invited to get a free consultation with an instructional designer to talk about their individual course. Instructional designers can help faculty members think through strategies for engaging their students, refashioning their assignments for a digital environment, and aligning their course with best practices for online courses. 

Sign up for a consultation with an instructional designer.

Instructional designers also are available to complete a free quality review on online and hybrid courses. Quality reviews are based on TLT’s “The I Can Design for Online” resource, which is a set of guidelines for high-quality online courses derived from nationally recognized rubrics such as the quality matters rubric.

Sign up for a quality review.
