Happy Thanksgiving!

Around Thanksgiving, it’s nice to pause in our busy schedules to consider what we’re thankful for.

Over the past year, our team had incredible opportunities to connect with others—on Model eLearning, Twitter, at conferences, and of course, on our own campus. Everyone we’ve talked to shares a drive to improve the learning experience for all learners. Whether you’ve followed from the beginning or just popped in to read a recent post, we’re thankful for what you bring to the conversation.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving—we hope you have great food, good conversations, and return ready to finish 2018. We’ll see you next week with new content.

Symposium on Universal Design for Instruction and Learning

While we planned to have content for you this week, we’ve spent most of our time preparing to present at IUPUC’s Symposium on Universal Design for Instruction and Learning. In our session, we’ll discuss “Why, What, & How: Using UDL in Course Materials to Enhance Learner Experience.” Don’t worry, we’ll share our research on the blog!

Since next week is Thanksgiving, we’ll be back with new content in two weeks.

Are you going to be at the Symposium? Stop by to see us!

Then I discovered I had to write a blog post. Continue reading “Abandoning Dead End Ideas”
