Save the Date: Accommodations, Accessibility and Universal Design

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.

This graphic organizer of the Universal Design for Learning Guidelines depicts the three main principles of UDL in three color-coded columns with numbered explanations and bulleted examples beneath each principle heading.
