Online course: Apply universal design for learning (UDL)

Faculty teaching online courses encounter a diverse student population with various learning preferences and needs. Instead of creating a one-size-fits-all approach to teaching, consider designing and delivering your course using a framework that provides flexible instructional goals, methods, materials and assessments with embedded choices and scaffolds to meet the needs of your diverse learning population. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) take into consideration that students learn differently and, therefore, should be provided with different options for learning materials and for demonstrating learning. This workshop will help you understand the core concepts of UDL and apply them to an online course setting.

At the end of this online workshop, the participants should be able to:

  • Identify barriers that may be present in an online course environment
  • Identify the fundamental concepts of UDL, including how it differs from differentiated instruction, and how UDL design, eliminates barriers in online course environments
  • Design and deliver an element of an online course element using the principles of UDL
