OER Production Series: UDL and Open Educational Resources

About the Session:

OER Production SeriesThis event in the OER Production Series 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 to 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 versus print formats. The session will include concrete examples and opportunities to apply learning.
