UDL in the Cloud Virtual Book Study

The book UDL in the Cloud by Katie Novak and Tom Thibodeau helps educators design and deliver more accessible, engaging, and effective online learning experiences. The authors offer a highly practical approach to developing e-courses, virtual snow days, flipped classes, and blended learning experiences that meet the needs of diverse learners.

During this asynchronous book study participants will discuss potential barriers to learning, cultivate an engaging “instructor presence” in a virtual environment, develop a detailed syllabus that inspires and motivates students, help scaffold students’ time management skills, and much more.
