You already know the basics of Universal Design for Learning (UDL): how to provide learners with multiple means of engagement, representation of information, and ways to act and express themselves.
Our Learning Lab will take you from practitioner to expert-level strategies and from individual learning experiences all the way to strategic ways to lower learning barriers across entire institutions. In our lab, you'll practice with the 31 checkpoints of UDL; learn proven approaching-expert strategies that show learners how to learn effectively; and plan a micro-project to analyze, implement, and assess a UDL-informed design or redesign of a learning interaction at your institution.
NOTE: You will be asked to complete assignments in between the Learning Lab segments that support the learning outcomes stated below. You will receive feedback and constructive critique from course facilitators.
- Align specific UDL checkpoints as primary guiding principles for existing learning interactions.
- Apply approaching-expert UDL strategies in order to strengthen learning interactions.
- Plan, analyze, implement, and assess a UDL-informed design or redesign of a learning interaction at your institution.
