Leveraging diverse f2f and online materials, methods, and means of assessment supports flexibility and variation in instruction, and results in increased student satisfaction and growth. Engaging, multisensory materials and resources offer students different learning options and offer instructors opportunities to implement the Universal Design for Learning core principles – Multiple means of representation, action and expression, and engagement Paired with f2f hands-on experiences, online learning can enrich assistive technology instruction The author presents a best practice model for blended-learning instruction in augmentative and alternative communication for graduate speech language pathology students, focusing on learning strategies and techniques, instructional issues and solutions, courseware components, and learning outcomes
