The covid-19 pandemic caused changes in the work and study routines of millions of people throughout Brazil. In potiguares lands, the Federal University of Rio Grande do Norte has adopted several strategies, within the context of Emergency Remote Education, to minimize the impacts of these changes in academic activities.

With this objective, another qualification course will be offered, this time, having as main theme the “New Scenarios of Inclusive Education in the Context of Pandemic Covid-19”. The offer is from the Secretariat for Inclusion and Accessibility (SIA) of UFRN and has the support of the Department of Distance Education of the University and the Dean of Personnel Management (PROGESP / UFRN).

Professor Ricardo Lins, Secretary of Inclusion and Accessibility at UFRN and Course Coordinator, spoke about this initiative: “we hope to contribute so that teachers, civil servants, in general, can learn a little more about the discussion of Design Universal for Learning in this perspective of online teaching, understanding issues that are important when discussing accessibility in the virtual environment ”.

Also according to Ricardo Lins, in the course, which will last 20 hours, 10 synchronous and 10 asynchronous, teachers may have, in their virtual classes, blind, deaf, deaf-blind students, with attention deficit, with health disorders mental and therefore need to be prepared to encourage the effective participation of these students in remote activities.

For those interested in participating, registration is open and must be made at SIGRH, until Tuesday, September 1st, 2020. Just follow this path: Menu> Server> Training> Registration> Make Registration. Remote classes will be taught in PROGESP’s Virtual Learning Environment, AVAProgesp.
