Join us for a workshop series on Universal Design for Learning (UDL) in honour of the United Nations’ International Day for Persons with Disabilities.
Gain a robust introduction to CAST’s Universal Design for Learning (UDL) guidelines through a series of online workshops exploring their application through a range of teaching functions. The workshops will be participatory and collaborative, with a focus on developing strategies you can implement in your courses.
Attend as many or as few workshops as you like!
An Introduction to Universal Design for Learning (UDL)
Monday, December 4, 10:00am – 12:00pm
The first workshop will provide an introduction to the guidelines and is a recommended prerequisite for the other workshops if you are new to UDL.
UDL in Assessment Design
Monday, December 4, 1:00pm – 3:00pm
The second workshop in the series focuses on applying UDL in the design of course assessments, which may reduce the need for accommodations and, more importantly, signals to disabled students that they have been considered in your course design.
UDL in Course Content Creation, Curation & Presentation
Tuesday, December 5, 10:00am – 12:00pm
The third workshop in the series tackles how course content is conveyed – UDL can be applied here as well!

The fourth workshop in the series explores how tools in Avenue can support your efforts to implement UDL principles in your teaching.
