Having an understanding of both cognitive disabilities and the user experience will help you to develop virtual content that is both accessible and easy to use for people who interact with it.  When it comes to accessibility, cognitive disabilities are often overlooked and hard to address because of the challenges of creating content that meets their needs.

We will discuss the challenges that people with cognitive disabilities have reading content online and its relationship to the user experience principles.  One of the goals is to provide you with some information you can use to improve the user experience for everyone regardless of their challenges.

CARLI is pleased to offer a 3-week synchronous and asynchronous course on open educational resources. This virtual course includes material that was first shared with the CARLI membership during the Open Textbook Network Train-the-Trainer workshops.

This course will be offered June 2023 with the live sessions on June 7, 14, and 21 from 11:30 am - 1:00pm. Attendees should plan to attend each live session.

The live sessions will include some presentations, but the aim of the course planners is that these will incorporate a flipped classroom model to build community among participants as all share and discuss the topics.

Technology used for live sessions: Zoom, ideally participants will be able to use video as well as audio.

Registration: More information on this course and instructions for registering can be found here.

If you have any questions, please send them to CARLI Support.

Teaching in any environment involves a lot of trial and error, especially when developing lessons for the first time. In spring 2021, Grace Therrell taught a for-credit, first year seminar focused on social media. The experience was trial-by-fire, as Grace had to navigate developing a full-semester course for the first time, teaching online (and during a pandemic), and tying information literacy concepts to a larger context. Grace taught a version of the course again, this time in-person, in Fall 2022.

In this webinar, participants will hear how Grace navigated challenges throughout both semesters, using reflection and student feedback to regroup.

Grace Therrell (she/her) is the Student Success Librarian for Online Pedagogy and Assistant Professor at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. She works primarily with first-year students and with students in online spaces. Grace is also a PhD student in Adult and Continuing Education at UTK, where she is researching instruction librarians’ training, professional development, and teaching identities.
