Fall Faculty Workshop 2023 (10:30am-2:30pm)

Thursday, August 17, 2023 - 12:00 am to 11:59 pm

Faculty, Staff & Administrators Are All Welcome!

Our guest for Fall Faculty Workshop will be Thomas J. Tobin, a leading voice in technology-mediated education. Tobin is co-author of Reach Everyone, Teach Everyone, the essential book on Universal Design for Learning (UDL) in higher education. According to Tobin,“although it is often associated with students with disabilities, UDL can be profitably broadened toward a larger ease-of-use and general diversity framework.”

The agenda for the day includes:

  • 10:30am - an interactive session on what UDL is and how faculty members can adopt it
  • 1:00pm - a true workshop during which you will craft an assignment for one of your courses that increases student choices about how they demonstrate their skills, without changing the criteria by which you grade the assignment.

As always, a featured attraction of FFW is the opportunity for fellowship as we return for a new academic year, and so we will also provide coffee, tea, pastries, and lunch.
