    Universal Design for Learning (Part 6): Culturally Diverse Learners

    While postsecondary classrooms are becoming more diverse in a number of ways, international and English language learning students represent a growing sub-population. While Universal Design for Learning, or UDL, strategies can reduce barriers and increase access to success for all learners in your classroom, there are specific strategies you can use for those students who may have to surmount cultural and language barriers in particular While UDL principles can be implemented in no-tech, low-tech, or high-tech ways, UDL adopters often use free and low-cost technology tools due to their powerful learning possibilities for these student groups. There are three core principles of UDL: providing multiple means of engagement, representation, and…

    Confident Pluralism: Living in a Deeply Diverse Society

    In our country’s history and in our best moments, we have protected the ability of different groups to pursue different ways of life. We would not have had suffrage, we would not have had abolition, we would not have had civil rights without the groups that preceded those efforts, the groups of people who met in private spaces and sometimes for purely social means to craft agendas, to form friendships, and to pursue solidarity. Confident pluralism is a response to the recognition that we live in a deeply divisive and diverse society where our differences are not going to be overcome. So, it’s a challenge and a question of how…

    Kenneth Mack | The 14th amendment: its radical past (and future?)

    MARK TUSHNET: I want to welcome you to the final lecture in the series from this semester on Diversity in US Legal History. Before I turn the program over to Professor Mack, I do want to mention or confirm something that I mentioned at the prior session, which is that there will be a successor series of lectures next semester.

    Modern Times: Camille Paglia & Jordan B Peterson

    I’ve really been trying to understand the underlying psychology of postmodernism and its relationship with neo-Marxism, and then the spread of that into the universities and the effect on the culture. And what I would like to start with is a description of your understanding of that, because I’ve presented to the people who are listening to me my understanding of it. But I interviewed Stephen Hicks recently, and he wrote an interesting book called “Explaining Postmodernism,” which I liked quite a bit. It’s been criticized for being too right-wing, although I don’t think he’s right-wing at all. I think maybe you could characterize him as middle-of-the-road conservative, but I…
