Effective learning practices provide students with tasks and feedback that promote student engagement and support scaffolds in learning. One way to approach assessment is through the lens of Universal Design for Learning (UDL). The three principles of UDL identify how multimedia is integral for supporting all learners. In this presentation, Carol will briefly highlight her integration of UDL through the use of video tasks and feedback to better engage and support student learning.

Presenter: Dr Carol Johnson, Senior Lecturer in Music (Online Learning and Educational Technologies), Melbourne Conservatorium of Music

Dr. Carol Johnson is a Senior Lecturer in Music (Online Learning and Educational Technologies) at the University of Melbourne. She has taught in the online environment since 2004 in the areas of music and teacher education. In 2006, Carol founded The Virtual School of Music, an online music school based out of Nashville, TN which provided their global student body with access to one-to-one online music performance instruction and online music classes. Her online teaching practice seeks to create engaging online learning environments where students encounter personalization of learning.

Carol's teaching in online learning is based in research-informed practices. Her research studies explore the use of multimedia in online learning to support student engagement, design of online orientations for setting up students for online learning success, history of online music classes in the United States, instructors and technology adoption in online learning, and the development of a framework for teaching music online. Her most recent co-edited book publication (Developing Pedagogy for Teaching Music Online) identified the current research and strategies used to support learning music when taught completely online.
