Optimizing Active Learning Environments and Faculty Development Through Universal Design

Thursday, February 21 | 9:30AM–10:15AM PT | Carmel, Fourth Floor
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Discussion Circle
Too often when Universal Design for Learning is discussed, it is reactive and responsive to specific areas of accessibility, despite the proactive and inclusive inherent nature of these design principles. This discussion circle will move the conversation toward how faculty development and active learning environments both can be augmented by UDL from the onset and what the future pathways might entail for this to occur. As a group, we could find ways to optimize the balance of UDL, active learning, and faculty development occurring on our campuses through reflective and interactive discourse.

Outcomes: Explore ways to augment faculty development programming and active learning environments through the use/lens of UDL principles * Synthesize how UDL (as proactive vs. reactive/responsive model) supports goals of faculty development and active learning environments * Strategize ways to use UDL in future teaching and learning programming on your campus
