This course will introduce the key concepts of Universal Design for Learning (UDL), and give you the knowledge you need to start using UDL in your lesson and assessment design both in the classroom and online (which is our new normal!). Whether you teach students, adult learners, or in higher education, the principles of UDL will support the development of learning experiences that allow all learners to access high-quality teaching and learning that is empowering, innovative, culturally sustaining, and linguistically appropriate. Whether you teach face-to-face, in a hybrid environment, or remotely, proactively identifying barriers and eliminating them through design will help to create more equitable learning environments for all learners, regardless of variability. Each module will include a variety of resources to increase options for representation and increase engagement throughout the course. Additionally, there will be numerous options for action and expression so all course assignments are relevant, authentic, meaningful.
