Universal Design faculty course redesign grant awarded

WVU Campus

The Teaching and Learning Commons, in partnership with the Office of Accessibility Services, offered its first round of Universal Design Faculty Course Development Grants this summer. These grants include a stipend of $3,500 to support WVU faculty as they design or redesign courses to meet the principles of Universal Design of Learning.

The grants were awarded to the following instructors:  

  • Samantha Ross, assistant professor, College of Physical Activity and Sport Sciences

  • Kim Floyd, associate professor, College of Education and Human Services

  • Lisa Weihman, associate professor, Eberly College of Arts and Sciences

  • Pawan Jain, assistant professor, Chambers College of Business and Economics

  • Christina Glance, doctoral student and graduate teaching assistant, College of Education and Human Services

  • Jamison Conley, associate professor, Eberly College of Arts and Sciences

  • Elizabeth Puette, associate professor, School of Dentistry 

Recipients will showcase their work at two upcoming events, a forthcoming professional development workshop hosted by TLC, which will be announced in the fall or spring, and at Celebrate 2022.

Staff from TLC and OAS are available as members of each instructor’s course design team, providing consultations and developmental support throughout the design process. Curated resources and Q&A sessions are available to help instructors explore UDL principles, and OAS provides transcription and captioning for audio and video content, as needed.
