Are you familiar with Universal Design for Learning?
According to CAST’s UDL on Campus guide:
Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a set of principles for curriculum development that give all individuals equal opportunities to learn. UDL provides a blueprint for creating instructional goals, methods, materials, and assessments that work for everyone–not a single, one-size-fits-all solution but rather flexible approaches that can be customized and adjusted for individual needs
You know that every COD student learns differently – UDL provides guidelines “for developing curricula, selecting materials and creating learning environments” that takes unique learners into consideration.
