Nevada State College and Sonocent discuss: How can technology facilitate a UDL approach to note-taking support?
Like many Disability Services Directors, Sandi Patton of Nevada State College wasn’t satisfied with traditional note-taking accommodations.

She wanted to reduce their dependence on peer notetakers, help at-risk students and increase retention.

Yet Sandi’s vision stretches beyond specific groups, with the ultimate goal being to introduce a campus-wide solution which functions within a UDL framework. For Sandi, that solution came in the form of technology.

Sign up below to our upcoming webinar to hear Sandi explain Nevada State College’s approach to UDL and the implications this has for the solutions they implement. Sandi will explain how the college’s new Sonocent Site Licence will allow them to achieve their UDL goals: creating a solution which works not just for the whole student body, but also for staff.

You will also get chance to hear Sandi ponder three key questions on the practicalities of UDL:
1. How do you tackle faculty resistance over issues such as recording?
2. How do you work with IT to implement a Site Licence or campus-wide solution?
3. How do you plan to engage faculty staff with a solution that she believes will revolutionize the way they deliver information to students?

UDL requires different approaches depending on the student body in question. Nevada State College’s primary concerns are first generation and low income students. Yet Sandi’s vision to find a solution which allows for the differences in learning styles and needs of their students shows that its achievable for any institution.

Learning Objectives:
- Understand Nevada State College’s approach to UDL
- Hear how Nevada State found a UDL solution through technology
- Learn how Nevada State plans to engage faculty to implement Sonocent campus-wide

Not free on November 28th? Don't worry! If you register, you'll be sent the recording after the webinar is broadcast.

The webinar will be live captioned.
