This year’s International Literacy Day will be celebrated worldwide under the theme, “Transforming Literacy Learning Spaces” and will be an opportunity to rethink the fundamental importance of literacy learning spaces to build resilience and ensure quality, equitable, and inclusive education for all.
In this webinar, Dean Champ is going to explore how the 7 principles of universal design inform the preparation, content writing, physical learning environment, class structure and delivery of LLN content to his student cohort. Dean teaches Foundation level VET courses to students with an intellectual disability and by utilising the principles of universal design, he has reduced the need for differentiating learning material by making it more accessible and inclusive for his students. By removing learning barriers, the overall student experience is enhanced, which leads to improved student engagement, participation and retention.
Dean won the 2021 Australian Training Award for Excellence in Language, Literacy and Numeracy Practice, and was a Bronze medallist in the World Federation of Colleges and Polytechnics Outstanding Educator award in 2022.
