Event description

Description

As part of the National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching & Learning's open access digital badge initiative, AHEAD and UCD Access & Lifelong Learning have teamed up to create the digital badge for Universal Design in Teaching & Learning.

In short, we've designed instructions and learning materials for a short introductory professional development course on universal design for learning and in partnership with the Forum, we are making these materials freely available to institutions interested in rolling it out locally by volunteer course facilitators. We provide the learning materials, the institution provides the staff time and admin to roll it out. The course takes a blended approach and requires about 25 hours of learner effort in total. Every participant who completes the course will receive the Forum's digital badge for Universal Design in Teaching & Learning.

On the 31st of January we will be running a facilitator’s workshop for all those interested in facilitating the badge in their own institutions. This is a great opportunity to roll out the message of Universal Design in your institution to start or grow your collaboration with academic staff.

In the workshop we will take potential facilitators through the open-access programme materials we have developed. At the end of the short workshop, participants should be confident in facilitating the programme in their own institution. The aim of this workshop is to provide participants with the skills, knowledge, competence and confidence to become effective facilitators of the Universal Design for Teaching & Learning digital badge

Why participants should attend? These workshops offer a useful opportunity to speak directly with the development team about the purpose and structure of the programme, and hear their insights and advice on how best to deliver and facilitate the programme for academic staff in their institution.

Date: 31st of January
