Join us for a TCDC Webinar on Universal Design for Learning with Dr. Tom Tobin

We are very excited to announce and invite faculty to join our webinar with Dr. Thomas J. Tobin on February 5.  

Some of you may recognize Dr. Tobin as the author of our fall 2020 book club pick, Reach Everyone, Teach Everyone: Universal Design for Learning in Higher Education, which led to the formation of the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) committee at the College. 

In our hour-long online session, Dr. Tobin will introduce UDL and share his thoughts on how to implement UDL methods into your course designs.

Early in 2020, students all over the world experienced a sudden, dramatic, and unprecedented shift in their academic world. A whole two and a half semesters later, we find ourselves preparing for more semesters teaching and learning in the virtual environment. Some instructors at Langara took the opportunity to share their perspectives on the impact of moving to online teaching and learning.

Our seventh contribution comes from Mário Moniz de Sá, an instructor in the Department of Biology. Below, we share his experience teaching in the fall of 2020. Mário gives us an enthusiastic and thoughtful tour of his genetics course with many practical examples of what can be done online.

We look forward to bringing you more Perspectives. If you would like to make a contribution, please contact Jessica Kalra at jkalra@langara.ca.
