Technology in the Classroom: Universal Design for Learning and Feminist Pedagogies
Friday, February 21st, 1-2:30 pm
Presenter: Dr. Sarah Smith Rainey, Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies
Co-Sponsored by Graduate Women’s Caucus
Technology surrounds us, but few of us are ever taught how to harness technology for learning. In this session, Dr. Smith Rainey will address the pros and cons of using technology in the classroom, focusing on best practices for feminist pedagogy.
This workshop is designed to introduce participants to the principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) which increases access for all types of learners, including those with disabilities. Dr. Smith Rainey frames UDL as a key component to inclusive feminist pedagogy and will discuss why UDL is often overlooked in feminist pedagogy. Participants will walk away with skills to implement UDL in their own classrooms. Please bring your laptop.
