A father shares how the UDL lens helped in developing a transition plan for his daughter, Brooke. Discover how each UDL principle was used in developing that plan.  Here is just the first:

 

Principle 1: provide multiple means of representation

 

>> Connected Brooke with volunteer opportunities at a dog rescue and kennel to explore hands on what it means to be in a career working with animals, and used a guitar, youtube videos, and iPad apps for pianos, to explore her interest in music

 

>> Explored www.alife4me.org for community career ideas.

Ten Steps Toward Universal Design of Online Courses

Ten Steps Toward Universal Design of Online Courses | 21st Century STEM Resources | Scoop.it

Implementing the principles of universal design in online learning means anticipating the diversity of students that may enroll in your course and planning accordingly. These ten key elements will greatly enhance the accessibility and usability of your course for students with and without disabilities.

 

Step 1: Develop content first, then design.
Step 2: Provide simple, consistent navigation.
Step 3: Include an accommodation statement.
Step 4: Choose CMS tools carefully.
Step 5: Model and teach good discussion board etiquette.
Step 6: Use color with care.
Step 7: Provide accessible document formats.
Step 8: Choose fonts carefully.
Step 9: Convert PowerPoint™ to accessible HTML.
Step 10: If it's auditory make it visual; if it is visual make it auditory.

We have been doing this for the past three years.  Establishing appropriate standards for course delivery, look and feel, and consistency goes a long way in establishing the foundation for a good learning experience for students.
