Digital Accessibility for Online Learning Webinar
Join us as experts from the UCLA Disabilities & Computing Program discuss accessibility best practices in online education. From “what is accessibility?” to best practices in developing accessible, technology-enhanced learning tools, this webinar will provide practical information with time for Q&A.
Panelists include Travis Lee, Carolanne Link, and Sal Santa Ana.
Adaptive Learning Technology Mini-Convening (Learning Lab Grantees Only)
This meeting will feature the LEARNER project hosted by UC Berkeley with partners CSU Long Beach and El Camino College. The UC Berkeley LEARNER project is founded on building the required curriculum modules and technology needed to employ a mastery learning model; "fixed (A-level) learning, variable time", rather than "fixed time, variable (A-F level) learning". The anchor platform we use is PrairieLearn, a free open-source system developed at UIUC that serves question generators, i.e., code that can generate thousands of equal-difficulty variations of a question. In addition to exams, it can host project autograders to allow students infinite attempts to achieve proficiency (with no penalty for late submissions). Our model is adaptive in that students are allowed to progress through a course at their own pace, slower than the "regular" pace if need be. We are in the very early pilot stage of design and development of a "learning navigator" that will track where each student is, when proficiency has been reached on a particular topic, and when later topics should be "unlocked". This navigator would provide a student view so they could see where they are and where they're going, as well as a dashboard for the instructor.
Closing the Calculus Equity Gap Webinar
Join us for a discussion with leading scholars and educators on the role college Calculus plays in achieving racial and gender equity in STEM, and how educators and policymakers can support student success in STEM pathways. Panelists include (from left to right) Christopher Jett (University of West Georgia), Frances Henderson (Just Equations), Nathan Alexander (Morehouse College), Omayra Ortega (Sonoma State University), and Pamela Burdman (Just Equations).
C-ID 101 Webinar
Have you wondered how courses can meet C-ID requirements and who decides? Join Learning Lab and guest Eric Wada, C-ID Curriculum Director, to find out how C-ID can facilitate articulation and transfer! (Visit https://c-id.net/ for more information.)
If you are applying for grant funding in response to Learning Lab’s Seeding Strategies to Close the Calculus Equity Gap RFP, this webinar will provide helpful guidance for course redesign projects.
