Teaching Neurodiverse Learners

This virtual workshop will include a brief introduction to neurodiversity including common misconceptions, instructional barriers, and strategies. Several evidence-based planning tools will be referenced in this session including Transparent Assignment Design and Universal Design for Learning (UDL). Instructors will leave with a better understanding of their neurodiverse students and some new tools for teaching these students in their classrooms.

Supporting Inclusion & Belonging by Leveraging Community Guidelines

Engaging students in the creation and use of community guidelines can support belonging and community in the classroom. This in-person workshop will explore strategies for leveraging community guidelines as an inclusive teaching practice.

Inclusive Teaching with Universal Design for Learning

When you hear UDL, what do you think of? Captions on videos? Screen reader-accessible documents? While those things are most definitely a small part of Universal Design for Learning (UDL), the UDL framework includes 26 other teaching practices designed to support teaching for all students, not just student with disabilities. This session will introduce participants to the basics of Universal Design (UD) and UDL. Participants will discuss and share strategies for designing and implementing instruction that promotes inclusion and access for all.

Trauma-Informed Pedagogy

Over the past few years, traumatic events have significantly impacted students—and instructors—in higher education. When a potentially traumatic incident occurs on or off campus, how we respond and communicate with students makes a difference in their ability to stay engaged with instructors, peers, and coursework.
