    On Friday, April 17 from noon to 1:30 p.m., the Canadian Association of Instructional Designers will be holding an on-line webinar as part of their series on Tools, Tool Development and Instructional Design. This session will introduce participants to a set of content strategy cards to assist in online course design and delivery. These cards were created to help higher education instructors branch away from fill-in-the-blank templates for course planning, to emphasize Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles in content creation, and to encourage educators to embrace a student-centered vision for course design. The webinar is offered free of charge, but you must register by completing a form by April 10 to attend.
