Roots of udl

Roots of UDL

  • Universal Design (UD) - Accommodate the widest spectrum of users without the need for subsequent adaptation

  • UDL makes teaching and course materials accessible to more students and reduces the need for individual accommodations

UDL and Technology


We know these help students with disabilities

We know these help students with disabilities

  • Accessible Web Pages

  • PDFs with OCR, Tags, Bookmarks

  • Descriptions for STEM Diagrams

  • Word documents with Structure

  • Consistent use of CMS


What are the benefits of pdfs with ocr and tags

What are the benefits of PDFs with OCR and Tags

  • Accessibility via the Tag structure

  • Search through multiple documents for keywords

  • Navigation through Bookmarks

  • Reflow for users with small displays

  • Text to Speech

  • Copy and Paste


Who benefits from pdfs with ocr and tags

Universal Design?

Who benefits from PDFs with OCR and Tags?

  • Students with Disabilities

  • Students without Disabilities

  • Faculty

    Everyone!

UDL and Teaching

UDL anticipates classroom diversity


Students are diverse in many ways

Students are diverse in many ways

  • Abilities/Disabilities

  • Age/Life Experiences

  • Cultures/Ethnicities

  • Native Languages

  • Academic Preparation

  • Learning styles


Learning styles

Learning styles

  • Visual

    • Visual-Linguistic (reading and writing)

    • Visual-Spatial (graphs and pictures)

  • Auditory (listening)

  • Kinesthetic (touching and moving)


Udl a framework for inclusive pedagogy

UDL: a framework for inclusive pedagogy

  • Information and concepts are represented in multiple ways and in a variety of formats.

  • Students are given multiple ways to express their comprehension and mastery of a topic.

  • Students engage with new ideas and information in multiple ways.


Representation

Representation

  • Ideas and information are represented in multiple ways

    • Lecture

    • Hands-on activities

    • Graphics/Audio/Video

  • Assignment: Create a 3D model

    • Physical model

    • Computerized model


Engagement

Engagement

  • Give students multiple opportunities for engagement

    • express enthusiasm for topics

    • challenge students with meaningful , real-world assignments

    • give prompt and instructive feedback on assignments

    • make yourself available to students during office hours in flexible formats


Engagement1

Engagement

  • Physics professor from India has students video tape Q&A during office hours

  • Individual questions answered for everyone in the course

    • Video

    • Written explanation

Benefits of udl

Benefits of UDL

  • UDL focuses on enabling the learning environment

  • Disabilities are part of the broader range of student diversity

  • Emphasizes benefits to all learners

  • Shifts focus from disability and accommodations to broader issues of teaching and learning


Institutionalizing udl

Institutionalizing UDL

  • Embed UDL into all existing professional development

    • In particular, bundle it with existing efforts to improve teaching and learning

  • Form a committee or advisory panel made up of “movers and shakers” for innovative instruction

  • Tie UDL to the strategic goals of your institution

  • Address the concerns of your audience —What keeps them up at night? WIIFMs?

  • Provide incentives, create a buzz, get UDL on the radar

  • Build on the work of the ACCESS Project
