Course Overview

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a framework that informs the design of instructional goals, assessments, methods, and materials in a way that is customized and adjusted to meet the individual needs of students. Essentially, it is an instructional approach that is focused on meeting learners where they are (learning styles, preferences, needs, and skill levels) and making learning and content accessible to all students. In this micro-course, participants will be introduced to the UDL Framework and its three principles, which include multiple means of representation, engagement, and action & expression. Additionally, participants will have the opportunity to explore strategies for each of the three principles. The culminating assignment is to develop a lesson that applies the UDL Framework.
