Universal instructional Design Principles for Moodle

Universal instructional Design Principles for Moodle | Universal Design for Learning and Curriculum | Scoop.it

The paper identifies a set of universal instructional design (UID) principles appropriate to distance education (DE) and tailored to the needs of instructional designers and instructors teaching online. These principles are then used to assess the accessibility level of a sample online course and the availability of options in its LMS platform (Moodle) to increase course accessibility. Numerous accessibility-sensitive plug-in modules are found to be available to Moodle users, though relatively few features were included in the sample course analysed. This may be because they have not been made available to instructors at the institutional level. The paper offers a series of recommendations to improve the accessibility of online DE to learners with diverse abilities, disabilities, and needs.

Applying Universal Design for Learning (UDL) to Evaluation

Applying Universal Design for Learning (UDL) to Evaluation | Universal Design for Learning and Curriculum | Scoop.it

Don Glass, an independent education and evaluation consultant, and a former UDL Fellow at Boston College and CAST has been interested in how we can be as inclusive as possible in the gathering and analysis of data, as well as in the sharing and use of evaluation findings.  He and his colleagues are interested in applying Universal Design to evaluation for the purpose of removing barriers, providing flexibility and promoting engagement.

 

They are "exploring the use of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) as a translational framework for guiding the design and evaluation of curriculum, programs, and materials. The framework moves beyond accessibility to include learning design. UDL provides a research-supported conceptual framework, as well as a well-structured heuristic for guiding inclusive design and evaluation decision-making. UDL prompts for the design of multiple, flexible options to address variability and supports expert learning across the affective, recognition, and strategic neural networks of the brain. I would locate the use of the UDL framework in the transformative evaluation paradigm, and argue that it prompts for evaluation design that aligns with many of the principles of Empowerment Evaluation."

 

Explore the hot tips on this subject:

> Monitor and evaluate outcomes for knowledge, use, AND values.

> Provide flexible options for data collection and sharing.

> Support expert learning strategies.

UDL - Addressing the Variability of All Learners, Nov 1-2

UDL - Addressing the Variability of All Learners, Nov 1-2 | Universal Design for Learning and Curriculum | Scoop.it

CAST is conducting a two-day institute,

"Universal Design for Learning (UDL): Addressing the Variability of All Learners", on November 1-2, 2012.

 

"In this two-day institute, participants will explore these questions while learning about the principles and application of UDL. In addition to hearing presentations from leaders in the field of UDL, participants will have the opportunity to actively engage in guided practice and hands-on experiences as they work on the development of a lesson, unit of study, or action plan to integrate UDL into practice.

 

The institute highlights UDL, emphasizing the UDL guidelines and application to practice, including:

> Connections between learning and neuroscience

> The three UDL principles and related benchmarks and checkpoints

> The curriculum framework of goals, methods, materials, and assessment as a structure for designing lessons

> Examples of practice that illustrate alignment of UDL to curriculum

> Hands-on exploration of technologies that support UDL

> Understanding that UDL is a change initiative"

Mulitple Means of Expression - Meaning Making: Promoting Deep Understanding of Content

Mulitple Means of Expression - Meaning Making: Promoting Deep Understanding of Content | Universal Design for Learning and Curriculum | Scoop.it

Jackie Gerstein shares Wes Fryer's "Making Media for the Curriculum" that illustrates the media that can support multiple means of expression and ways for all leanrers to demonstrate understanding of the content.

 

The following guidelines related to Provide Multiple Means of Action and Expression are addressed when learners make personalized meaning of the content:

 

> Use social media and interactive web tools (e.g., discussion forums, chats, web design, annotation tools, storyboards, comic strips, animation presentations)

> Compose in multiple media such as text, speech, drawing, illustration, comics, storyboards, design, film, music, visual art, sculpture, or video

> Use web applications (e.g., wikis, animation, presentation)Use story webs, outlining tools, or concept mapping tools
