I really appreciated learning more about tools available to help make course content more accessible and the reminder to be proactive in building syllabi with a welcoming tone and good universal design built in rather than going back and trying to fit it later.

This module includes great reminders about making course content accessible online, such as including captions and transcripts for multimedia. I'd like to watch the Washington Post video for further info/ideas, too.

Great reminders about learning and adhering to state and federal guidelines with regard to reasonable accommodations and promoting accessibility for all students.

I appreciated the reminders about hidden disabilities and how much depression and anxiety can impact student engagement/communication in the online learning environment.

I learned more about how web-based tools can be used to help build community for students in the online learning environment by encouraging sharing and collaborating.

I learned about being consistent with the development of modules so students can better find tasks and complete them online.

I definitely wished some of my instructors in college had done this training! The importance of validation and acknowledgment cannot be overstated. I'm thankful to have these important reminders, especially when much of our communication is done through writing/email/online feedback.

As we know and many of you have reflected, technology advances can be both helpful and harmful in the classroom or learning process. I appreciated the reminders about how TMC might impact our perceptions of one another or potentially cause more self-disclosure than is helpful.

I enjoyed learning more about how the type of student we're likely to see in college/undergraduate studies are older, have jobs, and may or may not have kids (80%). I also thought the information regarding how the pandemic has shifted the ways younger students might connect with online learning was interesting and a great reminder to stay abreast of the research to help better support our students.

I loved learning more about the impact of strong working alliances with students and the reference to the work of Carl Rogers in helping to build rapport, trust, and providing unconditional positive regard to students. I also appreciate the research on how we can help students feel more connected to the institution through regular, quality interactions with us as instructors.
