In this course, we will review current research and best practices for supporting a diverse set of digital learners, including those with low literacy levels, people with disabilities, youth, seniors, and non-English speakers. We will also explore a wide variety of resources and networking opportunities to enhance your understanding of both the challenges of supporting a variety of learners and the solutions at your disposal.

You’ll have the opportunity to share both dilemmas and successful interventions with peers. Together we will identify potential local resources to support your efforts.
