Session Type: Breakout Session

In this session, we'll present an overview of the key principals and guidelines of the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework. Learn how to differentiate accessibility from accommodation and explore why UDL is an effective framework to ensure all students succeed, regardless of background or challenges. We'll provide strategies and examples for tweaking existing courses to deliver big benefits.

Outcomes: Learn how to tweak existing online instruction to deliver big benefits * Get familiar, everyday examples that demonstrate why UDL is an effective framework to ensure all students succeed * Understand how faculty can create strategies with UDL that actually give themselves some time back

In a world where we are surrounded by many languages, many individuals with various impairments (hearing, speech, and vision), and highly variable learning modes, the implementation of tools in the classroom to assist all of these individuals is critical to learning.
