About

Designing for Variability across the Higher Ed Curriculum is an interactive poster in which a spectrum of practitioners shares stories about how their UDL training has inspired them to redesign and reconceptualize the way they teach, the way they interact with students, and the way they think about the role of higher education in general. This repository showcases first-person accounts of the transformative potential of a UDL-based approach to higher education, offering specific examples of what UDL-informed practice looks like in disciplines as diverse as Composition, Nursing, Welding, and Graduate Studies.

Dismantling Barriers: Educator Shifts from Non Racist to Antiracist

About

In order to overcome or reduce barriers for students, we must be able to accurately recognize and identify the barriers to equitable systems of education. This session is designed for educators who hope to gain a deeper understanding of the systems of power that perpetuate racism, what implicit bias is and how it can negatively impact educational outcomes, aspects of identity that contribute to learner variability, and actionable steps they can take toward change.

Session Title: UDL to Boost First Generation Student Retention and Success, Michael Ralph and Dolores Greenawalt

UDL to Boost First Generation Student Retention and Success

This session aims to answer the questions: How can the UDL framework help us design K-12 experiences that better prepare students who aspire to postsecondary success? How can higher education institutions use the UDL framework to meet the needs of first-generation students?

About

Today’s learner variability includes an increasing number of first-time collegiate students enrolled in classes. How can the UDL framework help us design K-12 experiences that better prepare students who aspire to postsecondary success? How can higher education institutions use the UDL framework to meet the needs of first-generation students?

We will share how stories from our teaching experience, emerging data from higher education, and research into what really impacts student success rates have convinced us UDL can be a tool to boost first generation student success.

About

Discover the ways to empower each learner to understand the what, why and how of their learning so that they can value their individual variability and uniqueness. With this rich understanding, each learner can then identify and develop the skills to support and enhance their own learning using ways to access, engage, and express in order to achieve equity among their peers in an inclusive environment and then become agents and self-advocates of their own learning.

Is there a place to identify what the expectations are and about how much time I need to set aside to earn this credential? Trying to decide when to begin. Thanks!

Good Q Ruby, I am wondering the same. Does it really take a year to earn the credential, especially if you have a firm knowledge base of UDL?

No sound? Am I missing something? Text-to-speech voice over is simple to accomplish and would help enormously. The NVDA screen reader is having trouble with the first reading assignment. Plus, when the assignment is completed, a screen appears that reads "BYE! You may now leave this page." But the only way to leave is to exit the course, which means I have to now reload and pick through to where I left off. For a course on UDL principles, it is a bit ironic that the module doesn't seem to be set up to accomodate all learners.

UDL is important to teachers and students at schools. To students, UDL provides multiple means of representations, which can promote students' understanding of lessons. students who can understand the knowledge and context at the lesson are more likely to master the skills and contents, and therefore they can achieve higher scores and succeed at schools. Meanwhile, UDL allows students to express themselves in multiple ways, which means that students can use the ways that they are interested to show their knowledge in classes and assessments. it is particularly important to students with disabilities to express themselves in flexible ways, because they may face barriers when they are required to use one way to participate in testing. Moreover, UDL stresses the engagement in students' learning, so that students are more likely to finish their learning. To teachers, using UDL to design a lesson is more likely to include all students at a class, because teachers use multiple ways to promote students' understanding, engagement, and participation, which can help teachers to design successful lessons. at the same time, using UDL can help teachers to reflect their students because UDL can be a checklist, when teachers design their lessons, and teachers can design flexible lessons if they can rethink their lessons in UDL principles.

Is it recommended to take both Levels or can one move to Level II if they have a good base knowledge of UDL?
