About
This session presents co-creation work and WhatsApp use to enhance learning. Dr. Furmonaviciene co-created an online textbook with an undergraduate student group of around two hundred students. The students completed their co-creation as group work during the revision sessions for the module. UDL underpins innovative teaching ways, where every student can actively learn. Co-creation of an online textbook and WhatsApp use increased student engagement and allowed students to provide unique inputs. This study argues that virtual learning environments for co-creation and mobile apps could represent valuable tools for effective UDL practice.

About

Providing a fully inclusive learning environment is complex and creating a culture of engagement and inclusion that works for all students requires a shift in thinking and a change of behavior at an institutional level. In this ever changing and increasingly diverse further and higher education landscape, Universal Design for Learning (UDL) provides an effective framework to improve the learning experience of all students within the mainstream teaching environment.

This UDL Overview page on the AHEAD web site provides an overview of UDL from the Higher Education perspective.

About

This video provides an introduction to UDL from a higher education perspective. Universal Design for Learning, or UDL, is a set of learning design principles that increase access and reduce barriers for all types of learners. This video offers strategies for engagement, one of the three UDL principles promoted by CAST. Engagement considers how students are motivated to learn the content by connecting course concepts to their academic, professional and personal lives.

Familiarity, Current Use, and Interest in UDL

This study investigated online faculty familiarity, course design use, and professional development interest regarding universal design for learning (UDL) guidelines.

About

This study investigated online faculty familiarity, course design use, and professional development interest regarding universal design for learning (UDL) guidelines. The researchers surveyed all 2017 to 2018 online faculty at a large university in the southeastern United States. Findings included 71.6% of faculty reporting familiarity with at least one UDL guideline, with most respondents indicating familiarity with guidelines relating to perception, expression, and communication. Faculty reported the highest implementation of UDL guidelines was for those suggesting options for comprehension as well as expression and communication; the lowest implementation was for those suggesting options for physical action as well as language and support. Survey results also indicated high to moderate interest in learning more about all UDL guidelines, with emphasis on comprehension, persistence, and expression. This study suggests that faculty members desire UDL training and offers possibilities for planning and implementing such professional development in areas targeted to best meet the needs of online faculty.

About

Higher education has a unique landscape that influences the methods of implementing and scaling UDL. This resource was recorded to summarize a workshop session from the 2019 UDL-IRN Summit. The workshop presentation focuses on networking and collaboration with others in higher education who are working towards implementing UDL into their systems, practices, and thinking. From Eric Moore's research, he presents a five-level model of UDL implementation in higher ed from the preparation level to the university-structural support level. The presentation helps higher education professionals identify strategies for moving to the next level of implementation. It emphasizes the opportunity to network and create a community of practice to support one another in our common objectives moving forward.
