An Introduction to Universal Design for Learning (UDL): Implications for VR Personnel
This course provides a comprehensive overview of the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework as defined in the Higher Education Act of 2008. This overview offers an introduction to how UDL is defined and the three guiding principles, the guidelines and checkpoints for guiding mindful instructional and curriculum planning. Through a UDL lens, VR personnel can become more responsive practitioners in how they develop their “curriculum” including defining clear goals and including flexible methods, materials and assessments. They can also be better informed to evaluate potential training programs and curricula to determine if their consumers will have total access to future coursework and curriculum as they develop individualized employment plans.
- Define the UDL framework as defined by law.
