Lance Eaton, Instructional Designer, Regis College 
Andrea Milligan, Director of Distance Learning and Instructional Technology, Northshore Community College  

This session will explore the pedagogical flexibility inherent in OER that empowers faculty to use a wider range of resources to allow for student choice of learning materials but also makes incorporating universal design for learning (UDL) easier because of the variety of materials available as well as the ability to augment resources.  Participants will be able to better articulate the important of using OER for the purpose of UDL as well as identify different strategies for incorporating UDL.  Additionally, they will be able to better strategize incorporating student choice within their courses through the use of OER.
