Online TINEL Conference on universal design for blended and e-learning in higher education on 8th and 9th December 2021
Join us in this great online event about Universal Design for eLearning (including blended learning) in higher education. Over two days we will have interesting presentations and discussions about good educational and accessible practices from many different higher education institutions (HEIs) in different countries.
The planning and implementation of equal study opportunities is an important goal and development challenge for higher education. The coronavirus pandemic has thrown most higher education institutions (HEIs) headlong into e-learning and greatly increased the emphasis on blended learning, for both the short and long term. How have staff and their students, particularly those with disabilities, students from a diversity of backgrounds and living circumstances coped with this situation and how have HEIs supported them? What has worked, what has not worked, what are the challenges for the future?
This conference is organized by the Erasmus+ funded TINEL Project (Towards Inclusive eLearning: Improving Accessibility of eLearning in Higher Education from Universal Design for Learning perspective). The project is coordinated by Häme University of Applied Sciences (HAMK) in Finland and has partners in Finland, Norway, Sweden and the UK. The overall aim of the project is to improve inclusive eLearning using a Universal Design Learning (UDL) perspective. Over the past three years, the project has explored inclusive practices in eLearning and the implementation of UDL in HEIs. The project has developed a training model for improving the pedagogic and technological skills of staff in relation to inclusive eLearning using the UDL perspective.
We want to share these UDeL experiences with practical examples. Join the TINEL online Conference and hear what we have learned, share your experiences and let’s discuss the possibilities of higher education for all.
