Traditionally, Universal Design Learning (UDL) has been viewed solely as an accessibility approach, but it also represents an innovative opportunity to remove barriers and engage students of all learning styles.
Join us for a webcast that will introduce you to a new way of applying UDL to your teaching. Our expert instructor will engage you in a hands-on activity around two core components of the classroom: 1) analysis and evaluation of learning objectives, and 2) assessment of student learning. You will leave equipped with practical steps you can take to apply UDL methods and materials to your work in those areas.
Who Should Attend
This webcast is intentionally designed to enhance your approach for being more inclusive and engaging all learners regardless of their learning styles. As such, faculty and administrators at the frontline of teaching and instructional design/development will benefit the most from attending this event.
After participating, you will be able to take the practical steps to apply UDL methods and materials to your instructional design and teaching approach to engage diverse learning styles.
During the webcast, we will focus on two core components of the classroom:
- Analysis and evaluation of learning objectives
- Assessments of student learning
For each of these components, the instructor will engage you in an activity so you can a) practice applying UDL design thinking, and b) better understand how UDL can create transformative learning environments for all students.
