Give all students equitable opportunity to engage with your course content

More than one out of 10 students in higher education have a disability of some sort.

Are you doing everything you can to remove their barriers to learning?

Find out how straightforward it is to make your courses accessible with the Universal Design 4-pack, a series of four Magna 20-Minute Mentors developed to help you provide all your students with an equitable opportunity to learn.

Youíll also discover how addressing accessibility concerns will improve your course for all students, whether they have a disability or not.

You know itís your responsibility to make reasonable accommodations for students who need them, but this package of practice-based videos will show you how to avoid time-consuming retrofitting and be an inclusive educator from the start.

Questioning your assumptions is the key. We all carry with us preconceived notions about how students acquire and interact with information, participate in class, and demonstrate their learning.

Through a series of sessions formatted to accommodate even the busiest of schedules, the Universal Design 4-pack will show you a thinking process designed to lead you in a more accessible direction.

Accessibility is at the core of what higher education is all about. Itís too important to be an add-on or an also-ran and too central to the inherent values of educators to be overlooked. The Universal Design 4-pack will help you meet your responsibility to provide equitable opportunity to all students, from course design through assessment. These programs are included:

These concise programs will take you all the way from comprehension to evaluation. After participating in these sessions, youíll be able to:

  • Examine course content delivery formats for potential barriers to learning
  • Formulate alternative, more accessible methods for presentation and acquisition of information, including print, electronic, and classroom formats
  • Employ backward design to develop accessible assignments

  • Demonstrate practical techniques to remove barriers to learning
  • Use learning goal criteria when designing exams
  • Analyze assessment situations
  • Devise more accessible exams in terms of format, language, and testing time

Whatever kind of institution you work in, accessibility issues should matter to you.
