Online course

In the built environment, Universal Design enables each of us to gain unimpeded access to a particular place, whether or not we require some form of accommodation. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) applies a similar set of brain-based, research-backed principles to the learning environment. Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to identify, select, and apply UDL principals that are appropriate to their individual courses. This course is a free, non-credit, entirely online course beginning on Monday, October 1 and ending on Sunday, October 28.

This four-week, largely asynchronous, online course provides an opportunity for faculty from all disciplines and members of the learning design community to explore and apply UDL principles. It will include 3 presentations from Allison Posey, Curriculum and Design Specialist at the Center for Applied Special Technology (CAST), and discussion and practice based on information drawn from teaching and learning literature on UDL, as well as from the experiences of individual participants. Participants may be invited to submit the results of their course work as exemplars for inclusion at SITE’s Tools & Resources web page.
