Research has been showing universal design for learning (UDL) as a strong candidate for professional learning events to help instructors use inclusive design, pedagogy, and technology to identify and support diverse learning needs in various learning environments across the disciplines in higher education.
TLOS Accessible Technologies invites faculty and graduate teaching assistants to participate in Universal Design for Learning (UDL) Day training. Participants will learn strategies and best practices that they can leverage to reduce educational barriers and foster student engagement and success. Participants will help further expand the current UDL Community of Practices at VT. Participants will increase their awareness of the challenges that diverse learners face in postsecondary education and be able to meet those diverse needs through course design and delivery.
