Universal Design for Learning: Designing Courses for All Students

Monday, October 16, 2017

12:00 PM - 12:50 PM

Center for Teaching Excellence
Thomas Cooper Library, Room L511


Do you want effective techniques for increasing accessibility and engagement for all learners? Accessibility in course design is often limited to documents, slides, and captioning. By applying the principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) to course design from the beginning, we can enhance learning for all learners, not just those with documented disabilities. In this workshop, you will learn about the principles of UDL, and how you can align UDL with all course elements. We will finish the session by designing a course module using UDL principles.
