Agenda

 

Overview

 

When most people in higher education hear the phrase “Universal Design for Learning,” they think about students with physical disabilities and the accommodations we provide to them in order to help them meet course outcomes. This course will show you (a) how accommodations and UDL are very different, (b) what you can do today, within a week, and within a month to reach out to your biggest segment of learners on their mobile devices, and (c) how to implement UDL across campus to increase persistence, retention, and satisfaction for all learners.

 

Learning Outcomes

 

NOTE: You will be asked to complete assignments in between the course segments that support the learning objectives stated below. You will receive feedback and constructive critique from course facilitators during the breakout portions of the course segments.

 

  • Incorporate UDL elements into your course-design process
  • Design/retrofit existing course components using UDL principles
  • Measure student outcomes that improve with the adoption of UDL as part of your institutional culture
  • Expand your use of UDL and accessibility elements beyond the legally required minimum
