Academic Technology: Two Projects Aiding the Quest for Universally Designed Instruction

Academic Technology: Two Projects Aiding the Quest for Universally Designed Instruction | Universal Design for Learning and Curriculum | Scoop.it

"Today we’re sharing the first of several posts drawn from work shared at the 4 April 2012 Academic Technology Showcase, which brought 70-some projects by UMinn faculty, staff and students making use of technology to provoke, further, extend, make possible a range of innovations in Teaching, Learning, and Research."

 

Two projects that incorporate UDL principles are showcased here.  Universal design means "creating more ways into the learning experiences for all students".  Take a closer look at these to projects:

 

"1. The Media Description Project – Real-Time Access to Images for Blind & Visually Impaired Students: write up by Tim Kamenar; Disability Services, student services coordinator.

 

2. Podcasting: Learning on-the-go: write up by Susan Aase; Disability Services, outreach coordinator.

 

Course objectives include

> increasing engagement with the learning process through direct involvement with producing and sharing new information related to the course;

> stimulating learning through use of emerging technology-based learning venues;

> building a sense of community by involving students in teaching one another;

> empowering students to become co-producers of the learning process and the outcomes;

> and increasing measurable student outcomes, such as lower rates of course withdrawal and higher final course grades."

Teaching Every Student in the Digital Age: Universal Design for Learning

Teaching Every Student in the Digital Age: Universal Design for Learning | Universal Design for Learning and Curriculum | Scoop.it

This multimedia book provides hyperlinks to resources, interactive diagrams, videos of techniques and demonstrations, and downloadable pdfs with templates and frameworks for applying UDL. It offers a nice balance of theory and practice and is divided into two sections. The first four chapters address the concept of UDL and its underlying neuroscientific principles. The last four chapters address practical applications of UDL in the classroom. Because of its multimedia content, the book is engaging, easy to understand, and accessible to all learning styles. It is a great resource and must read for all educators, especially current and future online educators, who are interested in personalizing and differentiating instruction in the digital age.

Universal Design of Instruction

"The universal design of instruction (UDI) is gaining increased attention and application by educational researchers and practitioners at K-12 and postsecondary levels. UDI means that, rather than designing for the average student, you design instruction for students who potentially have broad ranges with respect to ability, disability, age, reading level, learning style, native language, race, ethnicity, and other characteristics. UDI can be applied to all aspects of instruction, including class climate, interaction, physical environments and products, delivery methods, information resources and technology, feedback, and assessment."
