Kennette, Lynne N.; Wilson, Nathan Andrew – Journal of Effective Teaching in Higher Education, 2019
Universal design for learning (UDL) ensures that content is accessible to the largest audience by removing learning impediments (CAST, 2011a). However, few scholars have surveyed students about how much UDL they encounter in their courses or how important they perceive these course modifications to be, especially in a post-secondary context. To…

Parra, Ruben D. – Journal of Effective Teaching in Higher Education, 2019
This paper describes pedagogical efforts implemented to promote significant learning in a computational chemistry course. The taxonomy of significant learning advanced by Fink (2013) is used as a framework to discuss the results. Fink identifies six categories of learning: foundational, application, integration, human dimension, caring, and…
