Event Details

It is well documented that the principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) have enormous
potential to positively impact on the learning experience of all students, not exclusively those
with disabilities or diverse learning needs. Specifically, UDL promotes the use of multiple communication methods to ensure that communication methods are accessible to all
participants (Burgstahler, 2017).

UDL creates inclusive pedagogy by encouraging a curriculum design tailored to address the needs of all students. By acknowledging that there is no average, UDL focuses on the needs of the individual and supports students through the variety of transitions that define their experience of higher education. UDL acknowledges the diversity in experience, culture and personality among learners and provides teachers in HEIs with the tools
to reach out to all students in the classroom.

This professional development workshop will promote and implement an inclusive teaching and learning environment using principles of UDL for staff, faculty and learners in Higher Education Institutions. The workshop, facilitated by Dr. Abigail Moriarty of De Montfort University, aims to;

  • Identify the principles and best practice approaches of Universal Design for Learning (UDL)

  • Discuss key issues around inclusivity and UDL in Higher Education Institutions

  • Apply the principles of UDL to promote and implement an inclusive teaching and learning environment across a range of settings – Evaluate the benefits of UDL interventions over time

  • Establish a Community of Practice (CoP) to promote a UDL culture
