Do you aspire to provide your students with inclusive educational environments that fully accommodate their diversity – broadly conceived? In this course, you will learn to design this sort of environment following the principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) with the support of effective digital tools created exactly for this aim.
Universal design for learning (UDL) provides teachers with practical strategies and techniques to ensure equal opportunities for learning to all students, regardless of their needs and abilities.
By employing UDL guidelines, teachers minimize the learning barriers already when planning their lessons in order to put students in the best condition to achieve the established learning goals.
In the course, you will become familiar with a variety of strategies to implement the principles of UDL by providing multiple means of engagement, representation, and action, and expression.
Moreover, while technology is not a prerequisite for implementing UDL, the effective use of digital tools helps remove instructional barriers from learning, and transform it into a more personalized and engaging activity.
Accordingly, in the course you will be introduced to a list of educational digital tools that support the implementation of the UDL guidelines, are largely available by now, and are extremely useful in removing barriers and promoting students’ ownership of learning.
The proposed digital tools promote flexibility and provide options for differentiating students’ interaction and learning strategies. They also allow teachers and students to customize their learning environment to increase each student’s individual strengths, satisfy specific needs, and sharpen personal curiosity and interests.
The course will provide you with plenty of time to explore how to use these tools, and deepen their secrets step-by-step. You will also have many occasions to practice and discuss the effective use of the tools with your fellows.
By the end of the course, you will obtain a useful digital toolbox that helps you to implement UDL guidelines in your teaching and learning. Thus, you will be able to create an inclusive learning environment that addresses the diverse needs of all students.
