This week I am wrapping up my series on Universal Design for Learning by discussing where it fits in the college and university setting. Unfortunately, the majority of resources that I find online focusing on UDL use K-12 examples. However, Universal Design for Learning is just as important in Higher Education.
While I had planned to write on the many ways UDL applies to Higher Ed, I found that the video below from McGill University does an excellent job at providing an overview of the topic.
If this is the first time you have heard of Universal Design for Learning, you may want to refer to a previous post where I introduce the topic. Or view additional information on two UDL Principles – Multiple Means of Representation and Multiple Means of Expression.
While the video provides great examples of how UDL fits in Higher Education, you can always dig deeper by visiting the Higher Education FAQ page from the National Center on Universal Design for Learning.
