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. This free, non-credit, entirely asynchronous online course begins on March 2 and ends on April 3.  

This course provides an opportunity for faculty from all disciplines and members of the learning design community to explore and apply UDL principles. It includes three recorded presentations by 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.  

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to identify, select, and apply UDL principles that are appropriate to their individual courses. Participants may be invited to submit the results of their course work as exemplars in future SITE courses and events.        

Enrollment is limited to 20 participants. Registration will be conducted on a first-come, first-served basis. Participants will be notified via email prior to the start of the course.
