DOLCE-May 7, 2021 -Course Frameworks, UDL and Reflections
From Andy Jones
In May DOLCE (Discussing Online Learning and Collaborative Education) three faculty presenters shared their thoughts on course design, learning frameworks, and reflection about teaching remotely.First a guest speaker from Boise State University, UC Davis alumna Dr. Leslie Madsen, IDEA Shop Director and Associate Director of the Center for Teaching and Learning at Boise University, shared how she integrated Universal Design for Learning (UDL) into a program for Boise State faculty titled FLIP, or Flexible Learning and Instruction Plan. Then Dr. Joe Anistranski, Assistant Professor of Teaching from the Department of Human Development & Family Studies, showed us how he uses video to introduce students to learning frameworks and to the steps of creating, assessing, reflecting and discussing in his Human Development classes.
Finally, Dr. Bettina Ng’weno, Associate Professor in the Department of African American and African Studies, will reflect on her remote teaching experiences, sharing with us wisdom gleaned from teaching in the coronavirus era. Dr. Ng’weno recently won awards for her teaching of undergraduates and her mentoring of graduate students.
