OER your classes personalized? How Open Educational Practices support Universal Design
There is no “typical” student; how can we design courses that meet varied student needs? Universal design for learning (UDL) can help us build online courses that are not more accessible and flexible enough to engage a diverse group of students. UDL includes giving students various ways of acquiring information, interacting with the content and demonstrating understanding. Open Educational Practices (OEP) are a key strategy for developing flexible classes. We will look at how to design courses that increase student choice, encourage critical thinking, and improve learning outcomes. How can one build a course with this much student choice? It’s not only possible; it’s also orderly and fun!

Open Pedagogy: Who is Steering the Ship and Where Are You Going?
What would happen if students were in charge of the class and their own learning? Open Teaching Practices provide a framework for making learning more transparent, participatory, and collaborative. There are various approaches to for this strategy including giving students ownership of various aspects of the course and replacing disposable assignments with a more renewable approach. Open Pedagogy engages student with the learning, invites them into the academic space, and can improve learning outcomes. This presentation will present both large and small changes that help us build an adaptive course design.
