Projects completed as a graduate student at CU Denver applied to my work as Sr. Instructional Designer at Denver Seminary.
Accessibility for Student Success
Denver Seminary aims to enlarge its accessibility to serve all students equitably, including those with visual, hearing, or cognitive disabilities. This solution design document provides a plan to accomplish this goal by way of a training module for faculty to learn about accessible design, experience the accessibility needs of students, and create accessible content for their courses. The Accessibility for Student Success document now serves as part of Denver Seminary’s plan of action for universal design in its online courses.
Accessing Student Engagement
This design for change at Denver Seminary seeks to address the problem of how to effectively track and assess student engagement and contribution to the online learning community. This change document provides evidence for testing the approach of using ILA ( Interactive Learning Activities) Self-Assessments that students complete periodically and professor’s evaluate and provide feedback. It is used as a key reference document toward transitioning the seminary’s online courses to student self-assessments.
