- ItemOpen AccessIncorporating Universal Design for Learning in Disciplinary Contexts in Higher Education(University of Calgary, 2021) Abegglen, Sandra; Aparicio-Ting, Fabiola; Arcellana-Panlilio, Mayi; Behjat, Laleh; Brown, Barbara; Clancy, Tracy; DesJardine, Patricia; Din, Cari; Ferreira, Carla; Hughson, E. Anne; Kassan, Anusha; Klinke, Chelsea; Kurz, Ebba; Neuhaus, Fabian; Pletnyova, Ganna (Anna); Paul, Robyn Mae; Peschl, Houston; Peschl, Rosalynn; Squance, Rod; Dyjur, PattiUniversal Design for Learning (UDL) is a set of principles that can be used to guide course design and delivery with the goal of enhancing the learning for the greatest number of students. Incorporating UDL in higher education is complex, varied and nuanced work that instructors are doing to meet the learning needs of students in their classes. In this guide we illuminate different ways in which UDL principles have been implemented across disciplines and in different ways to enhance student learning. Each chapter offers a case of how UDL has been incorporated into learning experiences in higher education. Our goal is to provide discipline-based examples of courses that illustrate how UDL can be incorporated into a higher education context. Along the way, we hope you will be inspired by the work of others. We wish you great success in your journey to teach courses that are increasingly accessible and inclusive!
- ItemOpen AccessModeling Co-Teaching to Inform Professional Practice(University of Calgary, 2015-06) Clancy, Tracey L.; Rosenau, Patricia; Ferreira, Carla; Lock, Jennifer; Rainsbury, Jacqueline; Werklund School of EducationCo-teaching in higher education provides an environment conducive to developing leadership capacity in undergraduate nursing students. A mixed method research design was developed to explore how the complexity of the co-teaching experience influences leadership development of nursing students enrolled in the ‘Nurse as Educator’ course. The inquiry was guided by the question, what impact does co-teaching in a nurse education course have on the development of leadership in professional practice? Initial findings from the first of research are shared in relation to examining attributes of co-teaching, strengths and challenges, as well as how the experience of co-teaching has influenced student understanding of leadership in professional practice.
- ItemOpen AccessStrategies for Addressing Needle Debris: Scoping Review Protocol(2022-08) Tung, Megan; Jackson, Jennifer; Ferreira, Carla; Hayden, K. Alix; Ens, TwylaObjective: The objective of this scoping review is to explore the literature about needle debris associated with drug use in a community setting. Introduction: Needle debris in the community poses a public health concern. Needle debris and discarded drug paraphernalia could contribute to perceived social disorder associated with harm reduction services, like supervised consumption sites. Discarded needles represent a public safety risk for both people who use drugs and other community members. Currently, the existing research on this topic is scattered and has yet to be consolidated and reviewed. Addressing needle debris may decrease perceived community impact from harm reduction services, and increase support for these services among area residents, business owners, and others. This scoping review will be undertaken to inform a program of research around needle debris, to review available literature on the topic. Inclusion criteria: Studies that focus on strategies to address needle debris will be included, when referring to discarded needles and drug paraphernalia in the community. Exclusion criteria include strategies for people who use needles, who may generate needle waste inside homes and private property. Needle exchange programs and supervised consumption sites will be excluded when their primary purpose is to provide sterile supplies to prevent HIV/Hepatitis C transmission, and prevent and manage drug poisonings and overdoses, rather than prevent needles being discarded in the community. Methods: This scoping review protocol was established following the Joanna Briggs Institute (JBI) guidelines for developing a protocol (Peters et al., 2022). The databases that will be searched are MEDLINE(R) and Epub Ahead of Print, In-Process, In-Data-Review & Other Non-Indexed Citations and Daily (Ovid), CINAHL Plus with Full Text (EBSCO), APA PsycInfo (Ovid), EMBASE (Ovid), and Social Services Abstracts (ProQuest). The search will be conducted using subject headings and relevant keywords identified from analyzing seed articles. Studies will be limited to the English language. Data extraction will be completed using articles identified from the search that have substantial discussion on needle debris and the concept of disposal, retrieval, collection, prevention, and/or education. For a more comprehensive search, hand searching of reference lists and citation tracing will also be included. The proposed scoping review will be conducted in accordance with the JBI methodology for scoping reviews (Peters et al., 2020).
