Universal Design in Higher Education: Meeting the Diverse Learning Needs of All Students

Presented by Sara Stephens
Session Type: Practice

This presentation will focus on the concepts of Universal Design in higher education. Universal Design for Learning (UDL), Universal Instructional Design (UID) and Universal Course Design (UCD) are terms used somewhat interchangeably to describe the proactive process of designing instructional environments to be accessible and usable by all students to the greatest extent possible. In this session we will be learning about the application of Universal Design to higher education and will be putting these principles to practice. At the end of this workshop you will have a toolbox of resources designed to help you incorporate the principles of Universal Design in your courses.

During this session we will be working to modify or create a specific activity based on the principles of Universal Design. Please come to the workshop with an activity or lesson you have in mind!
