Description:

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) provides a framework for approaching the design and delivery of learning experiences in a manner that promotes accessibility and is inclusive of all learners.  This workshop offers a basic introduction to UDL and its three main principles, and provides participants the opportunity to address specific ways in which they may apply these principles in their courses.

Learning Outcomes:

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to: 

  • Identify key elements of the UDL framework (e.g., principles, guidelines and checkpoints)
  • Discuss why principles UDL would be applied when designing and delivering a course, workshop, or other learning experience
  • Provide specific examples of how each of the three principles may be applied in a given teaching and learning context

Description:

This workshop offers a more in depth exploration of ways to implement the principle of providing multiple means of engagement. Participants will consider a range of learning needs and preferences, in order to explore a variety of strategies that may be used to help motivate and engage learners.

For more information on the UDL principle that is the focus of this workshop, please visit the Center for Applied Special Technology (CAST) page on providing multiple means of engagement.

It is recommended to participate in the Introduction to Universal Design for Learning workshop for an overall introduction to the UDL framework prior to participating in this workshop.

Learning Outcomes:

By the end of this module, you will be able to:

  • Describe specific elements of the UDL principle of providing multiple means of engagement
  • Using the guidelines and checkpoints for this principle, identify strategies to engage learners with varying learning needs/preferences
  • Reflect on how you can apply the principle of providing multiple means of engagement in your teaching practice.

Description:

This final workshop in the UDL Series explores how to provide learners various ways to demonstrate what they know and options for navigating the learning environment. Additionally, the final portion of this module will involve bringing together concepts related to all three principles in the UDL framework.

For more information on the UDL principle that is the focus of this workshop, please visit the Center for Applied Special Technology (CAST) page on providing multiple means of action and expression.

Learning Outcomes:

By the end of this module, you will be able to:

  • Describe specific elements of the UDL principle of providing multiple means of action and expression
  • Using the guidelines and checkpoints for this principle, identify ways to provide options in terms of how learners navigate a learning environment
  • Using the guidelines and checkpoints for this principle, identify strategies to allow students to demonstrate their learning through various means
  • Reflect on how you can apply the principle of providing multiple means of action and expression in your teaching practice.
