Academic Technology Design Team - Consultations

Last Updated: 11/10/2020

ATDT Consulting Services

Our experts in technologies used in teaching provide consultations and trainings on topics including teaching, learning, assessment, and design. We work with you to identify the problem or opportunity you have in teaching and learning, and we offer advice for how to address that problem or opportunity. Our advice usually involves selecting a teaching method and supporting it with technologies. For example, we might work with you to help you reimagine your pedagogical approaches by exploring areas including:

  • Reviewing syllabi and learning outcomes
  • Aligning instructional methods and learning outcomes to course objectives
  • Providing formative assessments of your teaching with technologies
  • Incorporating student feedback into your course
  • Motivating your students
  • Creating student-centered content
  • Improving your efficiency in developing or administering learning resources
  • Envisioning Online Training and Orientation Environments

Incorporating Universal Design for Learning Guidelines to Improve Learning

One of our areas of focus is Universal Design for Learning (UDL), which is a framework for curriculum design that fosters an inclusive learning environment. Minimizing barriers to learning reduces the need for individual accommodations and helps to ensure that all students have an equal opportunity to succeed. Providing multiple pathways to achieve course outcomes motivates and engages students with different learning styles, needs, and abilities.

The Universal Design for Learning service is jointly offered by ASSETT and the Academic Technology Design Team. Contact us for consultations and trainings on:

  • Designing courses so all students have an equal opportunity to learn.
  • Developing multiple pathways to achieve course outcomes to motivate and engage students with different learning styles, needs, and abilities.
  • Universal Design for Learning principles and best practices for individuals, departments, or groups.

Our services are available at no cost to CU Boulder faculty, staff, and graduate students with instructional duties. Learn more on the ASSETT website.
