Lina Heaster-Ekholm's insight:

Designing learning events in a way that creates room for and responds to LEARNER CHOICE and LEARNER VOICE is a great way of putting into practice the 3 main principles of universal design for learning (UDL): multiple means of engagement, multiple means of representation, and multiple means of action & expression.

A Case for Accessible, Usable and Universal Design for Learning | Higher Ed Beta | InsideHigherEd | Learn by Design | Scoop.it
Lina Heaster-Ekholm's insight:

Here's a helpful, simple introduction to what we mean when we talk about accessibility in learning, and how UDL can be a part of the solution. Some great questions at the end:

"How can we continually affirm and acknowledge that “disability” is part of the human condition, so that people with disabilities are participants in (rather than only clients or service recipients of) learning design efforts?"

Course Hero takes a look at various note-taking methods to try and suss out the best techniques for recording--and retaining--important information.
Lina Heaster-Ekholm's insight:

Ties in nicely with Zull’s points in The Art of Changing the Brain. “As you write, your brain is filtering and organizing the relevant information you’re recording. It is this sorting process that helps us remember the information.”

LD Neuromyth: Learning Styles (Visual Auditory Kinesthetic)

LD Neuromyth: Learning Styles (Visual Auditory Kinesthetic) | Learn by Design | Scoop.it
According to research there is no more widely believed and yet thoroughly debunked neuromyth than learning styles While learning styles is an umbrella term that can refer to a number of different categorization models the most well-known is VAK: visual auditory kinesthetic (seeing hearing doing)
Lina Heaster-Ekholm's insight:

Does it count if I really want to believe?! But it's hard to argue against the lack of rigorous research to support the theory of learning styles. Note, however, that the author is not disputing the existence of learning styles but rather "the idea that having educators match the delivery of content to learners' stated preferences will improve learning".

See Your Point

See Your Point | Learn by Design | Scoop.it
The power of visuals to communicate your presentation’s key message.
Lina Heaster-Ekholm's insight:

It's not that Corbett says anything dramatically new or different in this short article on the power of incorporating visuals into presentations...it's that so few people do it, or at least do it well, that it merits sharing! She uses 3 helpful questions to guide her power point design process: 1) What's the one thing I want my audience to remember; 2) What does that (the one thing) look like? 3) How do I want my audience to feel about it (the one thing)?
