Responding to Student Accommodation Requests for Online Courses
Friday, November 9, 2018, 11:00am-12:00pm ET

Students have a variety of learning needs and abilities. In some circumstances, a student will provide an official accommodation request through the Center for Academic Support. The purpose of this session is to help instructors learn how to implement these requests in their online courses, to ensure the student’s needs are being met in ways that are appropriate for an online environment. This session will cover the strategies available to provide the requested accommodations. For example, learn how to allow more time on a test, how to allow multiple attempts, and what to do if captions or transcripts are needed.

Please join Pete Viccione (Instructional Technologist) and Megan Giebert (Instructional Designer) for this informative session.

This session will be held online via Zoom. A link to the meeting will be sent to registered faculty a few days prior to the meeting. To register for the session, please use the following link to enter your name and email address by November 5th:

A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words: Alternatives to Written Assignments
Friday, December 7, 2018, 11:00am-12:00pm ET

The vast majority of assignments in our online courses require students to submit written work. Although writing is often an effective vehicle for students to demonstrate their mastery of course objectives, assignments based on other modalities may be equally—or even more—appropriate. In this hour-long webinar, we will explore:

  • Alternatives to written assignments that can capture your students’ developing knowledge and skills

  • How these alternative assignments can enrich the course experience for your students—and for you

  • Principles of universal design that can guide your formulation of novel assignments

  • Software that can support your students’ creation of alternative work products

  • Strategies for evaluating student work in different modalities

  • The process for modifying assignments in your online course

Please join instructional designers Heather Myers and Maya Ott for this session.

This session will be held online via Zoom. A link to the meeting will be sent to registered faculty a few days prior to the meeting. To register for the session, please use the following link to enter your name and email address by December 3rd:
