This webinar will introduce you to Universal Design for Learning (UDL), especially as newly revised for higher education (CAST, 2014). You will discover how to implement UDL in the design of your online course environment so that it creates places for best teaching practices to take place in the classroom and beyond. This is best accomplished through an incremental approach, using a “next 20” series of milestones—achievements that can be attained in the next 20 minutes, 20 days, and 20 months (Tobin, 2014).
This webinar uses active-learning techniques and provides use-them-now resources for participants. Especially by relating UDL to broader access benefits for all learners, this session’s activities serve as a model for participants to re-frame accessibility and inclusion conversations there. The presenter further discusses using technology to support teaching interactions that are applicable to both online instruction and face-to-face instruction.
This webinar posits diversity in its most inclusive form: instead of relying solely on providing accommodation services to learners with disabilities—which is most often a last-minute, ad-hoc, reactive process—adopting UDL as part of an institution’s culture of course design and teaching practices allows all learners to benefit, regardless of their place on the ability spectrum.
