What will I learn?

Our current reality has demanded the integration of a wider range of digital means to promote learning, requiring us to be more aware of the discrete opportunities to facilitate learning across modes of delivery.  It also has invited us to deconstruct our current course design practices and reimagine building learning experiences in ways that are effective for the widest range of learners.  As we disentangle learning spaces, it also calls for our own self-awareness being as iterative as our instructional practices.

In this workshop, we will take a humanizing approach to designing and facilitating learning in a way that proactively accounts for neurodiversity and positionality of learners.  We will explore how self-awareness can improve one's ability to notice and tend to the multi-modal needs of diverse learners.  Research and best practices will also be leveraged to make plans for assembling the most aligned blend of learning activities, assessments, and digital means to provide transformative learning experiences.
