Teachers' Lounge: Learning Preferences & Universal Design for Learning (For Graduate Students)

October 9, 2019
12:10 PM - 1:25 PM
Butler Library, 535 W. 114 St., New York, NY 10027 Room 212
Teachers’ Lounges are a series of informal discussions for graduate students about teaching practices and the culture of learning at Columbia. This year we are focusing on making teaching and learning more accessible within a class. Providing multiple ways for students to engage with course materials and register their learning is an important inclusive teaching practice. This session will focus on Universal Design for Learning, a movement helping educators to offer students multiple pathways for pursuing learning objectives, based on research into individual learning differences. After an introductory overview of UDL, we will open into a discussion about “learning preferences” and consider what instructional flexibility that is keyed to them might entail in practice. Lunch will be available to registered participants.
