Topics covered in part one include definitions and the socioeconomic aspects of scholarly communication, in addition to the principles and expectations of the open access movement.

Making our online teaching and materials accessible for all students is important and challenging. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is an important educational framework to teach educators to provide multiple means of representation in instruction, but it’s also important to apply UDL to creating materials for online - videos, Libguides, document tutorials, and more. In this webinar, UNC Greensboro’s Online Learning Librarian will cover the basic principles of UDL and teach about specific strategies for applying UDL to online instruction and material creation. This will include free resources to help with image alt captions, video captions, and more.
