Session Title

Universal Design and Faculty Engagement

Presenter Information

Jedidiah Rex, Beloit College

Description

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is gaining attention in Higher Education as campuses strive to create accessible and inclusive learning spaces for all students. Since our faculty wrestle with how to best adapt their classes into the framework, I ran two pilot programs over the most recent fall semester: a reading/discussion group and a one-on-one service providing course audits. In the session I will share reasons for the rise in need for UDL and why implementing a UDL approach is important. I will explain how the pilots were constructed, share what worked and what didn't, and open the floor for a brief activity and discussion. Attendees will leave the session with tools for investigating the implementation of similar development and support opportunities on their own campus.
