The Impact of High-Quality Multimedia on Instruction
Joseph Perkins, Justin Joseph, Maritza McMillian, Shawn Wilson, and Jaclyn Winkler, Instructional Resource Center, Advanced Academic Programs, Krieger School of Arts and Sciences
In this presentation, we will discuss the importance of high-quality multimedia and how it impacts the student learning process. We will also showcase our cinematic lectures, dynamic presentations, infographics, and interactive learning objects. We will also discuss the resources and staff needed to produce this type of content in JHU courses.

Statistics that “Stick:” Customizable Interactive Online Tools for Teaching Data Analysis Across the Sciences
Jeff Bowen, Psychological and Brain Sciences, Krieger School of Arts and Sciences
Skills in statistical programming software (R, Python) are in high demand for post-baccalaureate positions across many fields. However, these skills frequently feel inaccessible to undergraduates in non-computational natural/social science majors, even while statistics courses are foundational requirements in such departments. Students frequently find course materials dry, static, and unlikely to “stick.” I present here a series of guided tutorials, interactive dashboards, and data-analytic software packages to address these challenges. These open-source resources facilitate active participation in student learning through interest-tailored content, direct and conversational language, and clear connections between research inputs (materials, data, hypotheses) and outputs (written reports, data visualizations).

UDL at JHU: Driving Institutional Change
Amy Brusini, Center for Teaching Excellence and Innovation; Celine Greene, Center for Teaching and Learning, Bloomberg School of Public Health; Lindsay Ledebur, Office of Online Education, School of Medicine; and Donna Schnupp, Instructional Design Team, School of Education
The Hopkins Universal Design for Learning (HUDL) initiative strives for equitable and inclusive opportunities for all learners to succeed at Johns Hopkins University. In doing so, HUDL is making an institutional shift in behaviors and expectations to embrace the tenants of UDL. One milestone includes the newly launched HUDL website. With the backing of JHU leadership, HUDL ambassadors collaborate with various stakeholders to support the integration of UDL into coursework. This session promotes this engagement through an open and honest dialogue regarding stakeholders’ perceptions about the initiative’s efforts, as well as UDL’s personal impact on teaching and learning.

Development and Evaluation of Open-Access Educational Media for Medical Trainees Studying MRI Physics
Erin Gomez, Department of Radiology, and Jeff Day, Department of Art as Applied to Medicine, School of Medicine, and Christopher Devers, School of Education
There is an established need for increased quality and quantity of radiology physics resources, but little data regarding the most effective methods and format. Based on the results of a needs assessment survey, we are creating and evaluating multimedia teaching tools illustrating the fundamentals of MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) physics to determine which delivery method is most helpful for residents preparing for the radiology CORE exam. The results of this project will inform the creation of an open-access digital library of MRI physics resources for medical trainees.
