Learning Ideas - Understanding Accessible Educational Materials (Aem) And Their Use: Tips For K-12 Educators, University Of Maine Center For Community Inclusion And Disability Studies

Professional Development

Students arrive in classrooms with a variety of skills, interests and needs. For many learners, the typical curriculum—including instructional methods, classroom materials, and assessments of knowledge—may contain barriers to educational participation and achievement. Students who are unable to access print materials face particular challenges. Accessible educational materials reduce barriers and provide rich supports for learning. By using accessible educational materials, educators enable all learners to gain knowledge, skills and enthusiasm for learning.


Why Career And Technical Education Teachers Contribute Intellectual Capital To Open Education Repositories: A Case Study, Kelley J. Manley Dec 2018

Why Career And Technical Education Teachers Contribute Intellectual Capital To Open Education Repositories: A Case Study, Kelley J. Manley

Theses and Dissertations

High quality Career and Technical Education (CTE) teachers are necessary in order to prepare students to fill the gap in the nation’s technical workforce. Technical skills taught by high school CTE teachers assist students as they continue their education in post-secondary technical schools. Post-secondary CTE teachers assist students in their preparation for future high-wage, high-demand technical careers. One of the many challenges reported by CTE teachers is the time-consuming development of relevant curriculum. The open education resource (OER) movement has been reported in research to alleviate some of these challenges for teachers, but research is lacking in the area ...

Leading Through Collaboration: Designing Successful Il Curriculum Development Programs, Carrie Forbes, Amy Harris-Houk, Meg Meiman, Page Brannon

Georgia International Conference on Information Literacy

Because faculty members in the disciplines are the primary developers of course- and department-level curricula, it is essential for librarians to initiate and sustain partnerships with them, in order to lead efforts at integration of information literacy into all levels of the undergraduate and graduate curriculum. Offering instructional development grants, stipends, or other incentives to faculty to partner with a librarian to develop IL curricular innovations is one important method for deepening faculty-librarian collaborations. Collaborative, incentivized information literacy grant programming can catalyze this integration by fostering mutually-beneficial, enthusiastic partnerships between librarians and faculty; by ensuring the library has an active ...

Building A Curriculum For The English Language Learning Program At A New University, Michael Cassidy Jan 2018

Building A Curriculum For The English Language Learning Program At A New University, Michael Cassidy

MA TESOL Collection

Turkish learners entering university for the first time have high expectations that a university education will be vastly different in its approach from their previous educational experiences. The hope is that learners will learn the skills needed to become independent, lifelong learners. While this may be true in their faculties, it is often not the case for learners attending English language preparatory programs (ELPP) where the course content is often dictated by textbooks. This use of the course books illustrates Krahnke's (1987) concern that while course books are not intended to be syllabi, they often become so. Many current ...
