Do you teach students who have varying levels of skills, interests, backgrounds, and learning needs? Would you like to optimize teaching and learning experiences in your courses? Attend this workshop to explore a planning and design framework focused on meeting the diverse learning needs of all learners. The Faculty Center for Teaching Excellence (FCTE) is offering a series of workshops on Universal Design for Learning (UDL).
UDL is an evidence-based framework for planning and designing learning experiences that is based on brain science. This series of workshops will introduce UDL and then explore the different principles of UDL. Attend as many or as few of the sessions as you would like. Each session is designed to be a stand-alone learning experience as well as a part of the series. Participants may attend any session for professional development and participants may also select to extend their learning to earn a UDL certificate.
Mark your calendar and plan to attend our introductory session on August 30 from 12:00-1:00 in the FCTE. This session will provide an overview to UDL to support faculty in beginning to think about and plan for a learning environment with flexibility that supports all learners’ success.
Sessions will be presented by Dr. Angela McKinney, IEP Technical Assistance Specialist.
Future sessions (all scheduled for the FCTE) include:
September 27, 12:00-1:00: Student Engagement with UDL
October 25, 12:00-1:00: Options and Flexibility for Input with UDL
November 15, 12:00-1:00: Options and Flexibility for Assessment with UDL
