Untethered teaching and lecture capture. Promoting inclusion and universal design for learning

June 14, 11am (PDT)


Untethered lecture capture (ULC) is defined as the integration of multimedia resources which permit faculty to be freely mobile within the classroom while simultaneously teaching and producing audiovisual digital recordings of lecture.  The integration of cognitive load theory with multimedia instructional design principles promotes accessibility, universal design and facilitates student learning.

Learning Outcomes

At the end of this presentation, learners will: 

  • Observe application of cognitive load theory and multimedia instructional design principles promoting inclusive and universal design for learning.
  • Compare and contrast strengths and barriers associated with traditional lecture capture versus untethered lecture capture.
  • Discuss academic benefits: e.g., accessibility affordances, student engagement, proximity and reusable digital assets.
  • Observe multimedia instructional principles: a) signaling, b) spatial contiguity, c) temporal contiguity, d) coherence. 
  • Evaluate ULC research findings.
  • Identify resources supporting ULC integration in academic settings.
