Response to UDL Article

 

In March 2017, the Tomorrow’s Professor eNewsletter highlighted an article by Fernando Gonzalez,

Assistant Professor of Software Engineering at Florida Gulf Coast University, on the possible effects of

active learning activities on students with learning disabilities.

 

You can read his article, For Some, Active

Learning Can Be a Nightmare, here: https://tomprof.stanford.edu/posting/1550

 

The article generated discussion within the teaching and learning community. Although published research on the benefits or disadvantages of active learning for students with learning differences did not surface, many education

professionals agreed that the article narrowly defines learning differences and active learning, and it

overlooks the benefits of pedagogical approaches such as Universal Learning Design.

 

Donna Plummer, Professor of Education, teaches classes on Learning Disabilities and Autism Spectrum and
Joel Klepac, a Licensed Marriage and Family therapist, works with college students with Learning Disabilities
and ASD adapting to college life.  They recently led a learning community on enhancing
understanding and supports for students with neurodiversity.

 

Students with SLD’s are on a spectrum with a wide-ranging variety of needs. In a lecture setting, advance organizers can serve as a road map for students. Such organizers can link what students have already learned to what they will be learning. One example would be a graphic organizer. Students might complete such an organizer based on the reading prior to class as in a flipped classroom approach. Differentiation can also provide additional possibilities for instruction and learning. Clicker quizzes, student-generated questions or problems, discussion with peers, and visual representations of the class content can demonstrate understanding and competency. Students (and faculty) may be uncomfortable (“What do you want?” “What are you looking for?” “How do I assess?”) with differentiated opportunities. However, students may explore and demonstrate content in a deep way through application of that learning (e.g., a PSA highlighting the importance of greater diversity in children’s and adolescent literature or a role play written in Spanish demonstrating women’s role during a period of history). Higher education has tended to focus on traditional forms of evaluation but we are experiencing more and more alternatives such as OCR codes on campus fixtures and film creation as well as the implementation of other technologies. Gonzalez’s concern regarding student isolation is a valid one. Many students will do whatever is necessary to ensure they are the same as their peers even when campus resources and faculty support may be necessary for success. Some students arrive on campus with few if any personal learning strategies for success. The success they do experience is a testament to their determination and grit. Although self-advocacy is critical for students with SLD’s, a need for ongoing professional development for faculty and staff (e.g., the current Neurodiversity Learning Community) is also important so that students aren’t viewed as “lazy” and “dumb.”

Attention Faculty!
Creative TIP 2017 Applications are due February 8!


Please encourage your students to apply for this innovative program,
which provides teams of 2-4 students with the encouragement, resources,
and support needed to conceptualize and carry out a team project of their own design.

 

Creative Thinking Immersion Program

 

The summer Creative Thinking Immersion Program (Creative T.I.P.) is an opportunity for students to spend an extended period of time collaboratively exploring issues or topics about which they are passionate.  The Program provides teams of 2-4 students with the encouragement, resources, and support needed to conceptualize and carry out a team project of their own design.  Over the course of the eight-week program, students will: develop and practice their creative thinking skills; take intellectual risks; communicate with diverse audiences; and integrate diverse perspectives.

 

In this student-driven program, student teams will spend the summer investigating their topics, collaborating with local businesses or organizations as appropriate, and engaging with experts in the field.  Throughout the summer, students will participate in student learning circles in which they discuss their progress, challenges, and process with one another.  In addition, student teams will meet with an advising team comprised of two faculty members.  This advising team will facilitate frequent sessions that offer students feedback, project guidance, and training in creative thinking.

 

Students are responsible for developing their proposal, gathering a small team of their peers, and submitting a complete application by February 8, 2017.  A panel of faculty and staff members will review applications and students will be notified of the status of their application within two weeks of submitting their application.  Once selected, students will meet together with the advising team to begin work on a summer timeline, budget, and IRB application (if applicable).  All participating students will receive a stipend of $2,500, on-campus housing, and project funding of up to $5,000 to support their training and work.

 

As part of this program, students will be required to share the outcomes and findings of their summer project with the wider community in the form of an open forum during the fall semester.  In addition, students will complete a pre-course survey, a post-course survey upon completion of the summer experience, and a post-course survey issued nine months after the completion of the summer experience.  Students will also be required to complete the Torrence Test of Creative Thinking, a national and reliable measure of creative thinking, at the beginning and end of the summer experience.

 

If you have students who would be good candidates for this program, please encourage them to apply using the attached materials.  If you (or your students) have any questions regarding this program, please do not hesitate to contact Ellen Prusinski at ellen.prusinski@centre.edu or 238-6295.

Project Title: Just Doing Things and Doing Things Right

 

Proposal Recap:

"I’ve started using an exercise in my 100-level class that focuses students on the difference between just doing something and doing it right.  It also serves as an ice breaker on the first day of class.  I pair the students up and assign them an activity such as planning a party, writing a paper, starting a business, or preparing for a job interview.  I give them 10 minutes to work up a skit showing us an example of just doing this activity and another of doing this activity right.

 

After the exercise we debrief by discussing: how often people just do things rather than doing things right; why we’re tempted to just do things; strategies for overcoming those temptations; and the rewards of doing things right.

 

Then I point out that the importance of doing things right applies to many of life’s activities, from preparing for class
and studying for exams to starting a career and being a parent.  Throughout the semester, I ask the students to
think about whether they are approaching their homework, quizzes, and other challenges by just doing them or
doing them right. Students love watching and performing the skits, and I find the exercise useful for
focusing students on excellence."

 

 

Why we chose it:

David identified a recurring challenge in his class and found a way to creatively and collaboratively manage it.
His active learning approach not only helps students understand the difference between doing something and
doing it right, it inspires creativity, movement, and meta-cognition.

 

Sara Egge

 

 

Sara's project was created this past spring for students enrolled in her course entitled
HIS 376: America in the World Wars.

 

Proposal Recap:

"The project asked the students to conduct oral history interviews with World War II

veterans. I wanted the students to engage deeply with the World War II period by interviewing people who had

served in the conflict. I also sought an innovative pedagogical strategy that positioned the students as

collaborators who could contribute to our classroom experience as historians and scholars. While I worked behind
the-scenes to locate veterans and secure the necessary paperwork, the students developed interview questions

and practiced interviewing techniques. When the interviews took place—twenty-one in all from late February

through mid-March—the students took the lead roles as primary interviewers. They interacted with the veterans

one-on-one, asking questions about a variety of topics ranging from the kinds of food they ate to their most vivid

memories of combat. The students excelled remarkably, asking graceful follow-up questions when veterans

paused to hold back tears, listening quietly as veterans recounted their worst days on the battlefield, and laughing

at stories of initiation rituals gone awry. In these moments, the students learned that history is alive, and they

captured it expertly"

 

 

Why we chose it:

Sara put students in the position of the interviewer to collect stories from WWII veterans. Instead of simply hearing

stories about what these men went through, students were able to see first-hand the experiences they went through,

the attitudes they formed, and the lives they lived after the war. By charging students as the collaborators and

historians, they were able to become immersed in the experience, history, and lives of those that served in WWII

and the ways in which their own lives were or are affected by hearing these stories. These stories are integrated throughout the course, bringing additional meaning to course content.

Tips and Tricks for Making a Reservation
on Event Centre or Equipment Centre

 

 

Download  or view a printable version

 

Changing Between Resource Schedules

  • To switch between resource schedules, scroll to the top of the page, and find the small blue arrow located to the right of the name of the resource schedule you are on.



  • Place the cursor on the arrow, and a drop down menu of additional resources will appear.

 

     

 

 

Reserving Multiple Resources

  • You can book all resources that you have permission as part of a single reservation. To add more resources to your reservation, click the More Resources link, displayed next to the name of the primary resource you are reserving. You will then able to add more resources by selecting them and clicking the Done button.

  • To remove additional resources from your reservation, click the More Resources link, deselect the resources you want to remove, and click the Done button.

  • Additional resources will be subject to the same rules as primary resources. For example, this means that if you attempt to create a 2 hour reservation with Resource 1, which has a maximum length of 3 hours and with Resource 2, which has a maximum length of 1 hour, your reservation will be denied.

  • You can view the configuration details of a resource by hovering over the resource name.

 


Recurring Dates

  • A reservation can be configured to recur a number of different ways. For all repeat options the Until date is inclusive.

  • The repeat options allow for flexible recurrence possibilities. For example: Repeat Daily every 2 days will create a reservation every other day for your specified time. Repeat Weekly, every 1 week on Monday, Wednesday, Friday will create a reservation on each of those days every week at your specified time. If you were creating a reservation on 2011-01-15, repeating Monthly, every 3 months on the day of month would create a reservation every third month on the 15th. Since 2011-01-15 is the third Saturday of January, the same example with the day of week selected would repeat every third month on the third Saturday of that month.

 

 

Updating a Reservation

  • You can update any reservation that you have created or that was created on your behalf. To do this, choose the reservation you would like to update, and modify the information as needed.

 

 

Updating Specific Instances From a Series

  • If a reservation is set up to repeat, then a series is created. After you make changes and Update the reservation, you will be asked which instances of the series you want to apply the changes to. You can apply your changes to the instance that you are viewing (Only This Instance) and no other instances will be changed. You can update All Instances to apply the change to every reservation instance that has not yet occurred. You can also apply the change only to Future Instances, which will update all reservation instances including and after the instance you are currently viewing.

  • Only Application Administrators can update reservations in the past.



Deleting a Reservation

  • Deleting a reservation completely removes it from the schedule. It will no longer be visible anywhere in Booked Scheduler


Deleting Specific Instances From a Series

  • Similar to updating a reservation, when deleting you can select which instances you want to delete.

  • Only Application Administrators can delete reservations in the past.
