Friday, May 13, 2011
9:00 am to 12:00 pm
Room 120A, Andersen Library
Room 120A, Andersen Library
Incorporating Universal Design principles promotes more learning, for more students, while
increasing instructor satisfaction. The focus of this workshop, therefore, is the application of these design principles through discussion, guided activities, and practical application to the participant's work.
Workshop objectives include:
- Establish a baseline understanding of Universal Design and how it generally applies to instruction.
- Link the principles of Universal Design to practices in design and delivery of courses, workshops, instructional resources or tools.
- Apply a Universal Design framework to the assessment and next-stage planning related to the participant?s work.
Workshop outcomes include:
- Participants will leave with strategies for incorporating principles of Universal Design into their work.
- Participants will be able to create a timeline for applying Universal Design to their work.
- Participants will be able to develop a plan for assessing their work that incorporates Universal Design principles.

- What are libraries for? by Hugh McGuire in In the Library with the Lead Pipe blog
"Ebooks will become the dominant form of casual reading for adults at some point in the future1. When this happens, community and public libraries will face a major existential crisis, because a fundamental (perhaps the fundamental) function of community libraries--lending print books--will no longer be a fundamental demand from the community. Libraries that do not adjust will find their services increasingly irrelevant to the populations they serve."
