UDL 101: Getting started with Universal Design for Learning
UDL is a framework that includes a set of principles that guide course design decisions in order to meet the learning needs and preferences of diverse learners. Designing courses using UDL principles moves faculty away from a "one-size-fits-all" approach and instead guides faculty in creating and teaching courses that reduce barriers to learning, increase learner engagement, and ultimately improve student learning and increase student success.
This workshop will get you started with implementation of UDL by introducing simple strategies including: providing choice in learning materials, choice in learning activities, choice in assessments, and various options for engagement and motivation. In this session, you will redesign a course syllabus and develop a plan for the redesign of a lesson or module. We will also discuss the intersection of QM Standards and UDL principles.
