You've heard about Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and the neuroscience behind it. You already offer learners choices in how they stay engaged, take in information, and demonstrate their skills. So what's next? This highly interactive session from the author of Reach Everyone, Teach Everyone: UDL in Higher Education will show you how to unleash UDL expert practices by aligning four common IT tools to the UDL framework: personal file space, calendars, collaboration software, and mobile-communication channels. You'll leave with specific IT changes that unlock access and empowerment to drive learner persistence, retention, and satisfaction.
