Universal Design for Learning: Understand It, Design It, Live It

Jan 01, 2023


Leveraging universal design principles for course redesign is an intentional process that can start with tweaking the format or requirements for a single assignment. While educators cannot anticipate every way students may be unique, we can use what we already know to make our classrooms and course components open to as many types of learners as possible. During this Preconference Seminar, participants learn to construct individual materials or an entire course according to universal design.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the theoretical underpinnings, main tenants, and specific examples of universal design for learning.
  • Assess the level of universal design at the course, discipline, and institution levels.
  • Conceptualize universally designed methods for incorporation across disciplines, course modalities, and assignment/assessment types.
