Introduction to Designing for Accessibility

Jan 25 - Jun 30, 2021


Full course description


Course Description:

Accessibility goes hand-in-hand with Universal Design for Learning (UDL). UDL is a research-based framework that supports removing barriers from the learning process so we can meet the needs of diverse learners. It's human nature for instructors to design courses in the way we like to learn (often without even realizing we're doing it!). Keeping UDL principles in mind can help us move beyond this natural inclination. 


Course Time: This training is estimated to take about 2 hours to complete.




SDCOE Innovation Division Innovative Digital Learning Micro-courses are featured in our digital professional learning program for educators to learn technology tools to increase innovation and equitable learning practices. Reflective digital professional learnings provide school districts with innovative solutions for professional growth. These asynchronous and synchronous micro-courses will provide resources, best instructional practices, technology tools, and guided support for educators as they move forward with virtual, blended, and in-person teaching and learning. Educators, administrators, and school staff will learn tips and strategies to support high quality equity and access to distance learning for all students. Integrating these technology resources in instruction will support educators to improve and customize learning for all students.  Be inspired as you access a repository of resources and tutorials that promote a reflective practice to improve equity within distance learning.

Innovative Digital Learning Micro-courses are designed to:

  • enhance educators' technology use for communication, critical-thinking, collaboration, creativity and innovation.
  • support educators to improve and customize instruction for all students in a virtual, blended or in-person classroom.
  • provide asynchronous professional learning options for the teachers (i.e. time, pace, and path).
  • personalize professional  learning for educators (provide multiple entry points, focus on choice-based professional learning, matching the skill levels and content areas of the teachers).
