The LSU Online team offers a faculty professional development course titled Designing and Teaching Accessible Courses. This course introduces the core concepts of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and the laws and standards of accessibility in higher education. This course aims to equip faculty with the basic guidelines and tools for making course content accessible and universal. At the end of this course, participants will create an action plan that details how they plan to implement UDL principles and accessibility guidelines in a course.
This course requires approximately 8-12 hours of work and is offered in two formats: a fully online format and a blended format, which is a mixture of online and face-to-face instruction. The total length of time provided to complete the course is one month. A certificate will be provided to those who complete all activities within the Moodle course.
