Fall 2019: Reach Everyone, Teach Everyone
Reach Everyone, Teach Everyone Cover
The Claremont Colleges Center for Teaching and Learning has selected “Reach Everyone, Teach Everyone: Universal Design for Learning in Higher Education” by Thomas J. Tobin and Kirsten T. Behling for the next semester of our Guilt-Free Book Club. The club is guilt-free in that all are encouraged to attend even if they haven’t done the reading for week or have missed prior meetings.
In the book Tobin and Behling show that, although it is often associated with students with disabilities, UDL can be profitably broadened toward a larger ease-of-use and general diversity framework. Captioned instructional videos, for example, benefit learners with hearing impairments but also the student who worries about waking young children at night or those studying on a noisy team bus. It includes resources for readers who want to become UDL experts and advocates: real-world case studies, active-learning techniques, UDL coaching skills, micro- and macro-level UDL-adoption guidance, and use-them-now resources.
There will be seven book club meetings, which will take place every two weeks on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Each week, you can join on either day, according to your schedule. You don’t have to attend only on Tuesdays or only on Wednesdays.
Lunch will be served and an email will be sent every two weeks to confirm your attendance and solicit your lunch preference.
Meeting dates are Sept. 17/18 (Intro & Ch 1), Oct. 1/2 (Chs 3 & 4), Oct. 15/16 (Ch 5), Oct. 29/30 (Ch 7), Nov 12/13 (Ch 8), Nov 26 (Ch 9 & 10), Dec 10/11 (Ch 11).
Book Club Meetings will usually take place in the Honnold Conference Room in the Library, and we’ll send out reminders with the location.
The ebook is available through the Claremont Colleges Library: https://ccl.on.worldcat.org/oclc/1066181353. You can also request a physical copy of the book in the RSVP form, and we’ll send it to you via campus mail.
