OER Production Series: Applying Universal Design for Learning to Open Educational Resources

This event is a part of the OER Production Series and is part two of our exploration of accessibility and Universal Design for Learning (UDL) in open educational resources (OER). In this session we build on what we know about technical accessibility to explore how we can go beyond minimum accessibility requirements. We dig into concepts like the social model of disability and how UDL can be applied in the design of OER. We explore multimodality as well as the benefits, challenges, and considerations of digital vs. print formats. This session will include lots of concrete examples and opportunities to apply learning.

Facilitator:

Josie Gray (she/her) is the manager of Production and Publishing at BCcampus. She manages the B.C. Open Textbook Collection and provides training and support for B.C. faculty publishing open textbooks in Pressbooks. Josie has been learning about and teaching accessibility best practices in OER for six years and completed her Master of Design in Inclusive Design degree at OCAD University in 2021.
