Creating More Accessibility to Classroom Content

Published October 12, 2014  |  Multidisciplinary

Anika Maloni Teacher, Centennial College

At Centennial we are moving toward Universal Design in Learning (UDL) and that framework is becoming more and more prominent in our pedagogical activities. The premise of UDL is that is that we give students as much accessibility to the course content and the school structure as possible. Creating maximum accessibility clearly involves the integration of certain technological tools that we have not been using or that we were maybe reluctant in the past to try, but that push toward UDL or Universal Design really has become the driving force for change.

Active Learning

Jean Desjardins Learning Technology Advisor, Collège Sainte-Anne
Isabelle Senécal Director of Teaching, of Pedagogical Innovation and of International Development, Collège Sainte-Anne

The active learning methods have in common of placing the students in the middle of the learning process. Their teachers can then also think about giving them a role in the planning of the evaluation. Active learning is inspired by real-life contexts that are meaningful for the students, which can increase their level of motivation for the tasks that are suggested to them. It encourages durable learnings rather than using only their short-term memory.
