Barrier-free e-Learning from The SUNY Center for Professional Development and EASI

Dear Colleague,
 
The SUNY Center for Professional Development and EASI (Equal Access to Software and Information) are pleased to offer the following online course:
 
Barrier-free e-Learning
Start Date: November 2nd
Barrier-free E-learning has been significantly updated and also enriched with new multimedia. The course now is based on the realization that course content authors, faculty and instructional designers, are placing that content inside a courseware or learning management system. Most of the Web accessibility issues relate to that interface, and only a few accessibility features are relevant to the actual course content. This makes creating accessible content much simpler. The revisions focus on a limited set of accessibility issues and also stress how to achieve accessibility using familiar software that designers are already using.
This month-long course is taught online and you work at your own pace. The structure encourages you to complete it in a month, but extra time can be arranged if needed.
The optional textbook is Making Online Teaching Accessible and is available from Amazon and from Bookshare.
COST
  • SUNY CPD Member – $245  *You may pay using your CPD training points.
  • SUNY Non-CPD Member – $265

• determine potential directions for professional development to enhance their teaching practices and foster student engagement/learning, based on principles of good practice and personal philosophies of teaching and learning;
• map out a plan to execute a specific, individual project that critically examines a teaching and learning topic;
• begin development of a teaching portfolio and other tools to support critical reflection about teaching and learning and assist with the teaching and learning project.
