Universal Design for Learning: Addressing Barriers

The LINCS Professional Development Center is offering a virtually facilitated course from August 20-September 10, 2018 on the topic of Universal Design for Learning (UDL). This facilitated online course provides an overview of the UDL framework and guidelines as well as suggestions for applying UDL principles to the adult education context. UDL is a set of principles for designing curriculum that provides all students, regardless of ability, disability, age, gender, or cultural and linguistic background, with equal opportunities to learn. Rather than a one-size-fits-all approach to teaching, the UDL framework provides a blueprint for creating instructional goals, methods, materials, and assessments that can be customized to meet the needs of all learners.

There will be two cohorts; one in math and one in writing. Please use the link below to register for either the math or writing cohort. 

Course Dates: August 20, 2018 to  September 10, 2018

Course Facilitators: Writing: Kathy Houghton and Math: Kathie Daviau (Read their bios here!)

This sounds like a wonderful opportunity for instructors and program administrators/managers to learn to plan for effective instruction to meet the differing needs of our adult learners. A short TEAL article, TEAL Center Fact Sheet No. 2: Universal Design for Learning,  provides a good overview of what "universal design" means. The best things in life really are free! Leecy
