Online professional development workshop recording (2012).

DESCRIPTION

This is a recording of a NISE Network online brown-bag conversation held in 2012 that focuses specifically on NISE Net's Universal Design Guide for Public Programs, and provides examples of universal design in a few NISE Net programs.

What is Universal Design?
Universal Design (UD) is the design of products and environments to be usable by all people, to the greatest extent possible, without the need for adaptation or specialized design.

Agenda

The workshop will focused specifically on the NISE Network’s Universal Design Guide for Public Programs.  If you are interested in learning more about developing or implementing public programs (such as interpretation carts, stage demonstrations, and science theater) that are inclusive of the wide range of museum visitors, including those with disabilities. 

Agenda at a Glance

  • Overview of universal design and universal design for learning in a museum context
  • UD Programs Concept 1 – Repeat and reinforce the main ideas and concepts
  • UD Programs Concept 2 – Make multiple entry points and multiple ways of engagement available.
  • UD Programs Concept 3 – Provide physical and sensory access to all aspects of the program

Technical difficulties with recording

Two important notes: the captions start up at about two minutes in. The recording also stops midway through the "UD Programs Concept 3 – Provide physical and sensory access to all aspects of the program" section due to technical difficulties.
