Advanced-Level STEM Pedagogies; Satisfies requirements for the Teaching Citation, PiP, and WU-CIRTL
Universal Design for Learning (UDL) was first described by the CAST group in the 1990s as “a research-based set of principles to guide the design of learning environments that are accessible and effective for all”. Through this workshop participants will learn about the three major tenants of UDL—considering the why, what, and how of learning. This workshop will also discuss accessibility in course content and course materials and how to move beyond the accommodation model in course design. Participants will have time to brainstorm ways to design course material founded in UDL principles.
This workshop is an elective STEM Pedagogies workshop.
Facilitator: Dr. Julia Johnson, Assistant Director, Academic Services, The Teaching Center
