Universal Design for Learning and the Myth of Average

Universal Design for Learning and the Myth of Average | Universal Design for Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

"I don't know about you, but I love TED talks. (TED = Technology, Entertainment, Design.) Although I have known about and preached Universal Design for Learning (UDL) since I began this blog, I could have never explain it as well as Todd Rose did in his TED Talk, "The Myth of Average". Thank you, Todd, for providing this concept so beautifully. (This is 18 minutes, but worth every one!)"

This post discusses Universal Design for Learning (UDL), a tool that is helpful to know about since the Common Core requires that we need to ""provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them." In addition it provides access to a TEDTalk by Todd Rose, where he discusses "The Myth of Average", a talk that will make you re-think how you view your students (and ask yourself "What is average when it comes to my students?").

In addition Glenda Hampton Anderson provides an excellent overview of UDL, perfect for someone new to these concepts or as a review. Many links are included which provide access to some of the best sites for materials on Universal Design for Learning.

Information and Resources for Universal Design for Learning

 

 

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is about more than accessibility or the notion of making environments accessible for learners with disabilities.  It gets at the heart of design – whether it’s design of a building, design of learning materials, design of a classroom environment, or design of a system.  UDL is about the decisions we make in the design and development of learning systems, materials, and environments and whether those decisions unnecessarily constrain learners.

Universal Design Learning is a framework for learning that includes all students. Being grounded in socio-cultural theory, UDL views learning environments and social interactions as being key elements in development and learning. In UDL students are allowed to express their learning in a variety of ways.

Who Ought to Underwrite Publishing Scholars’ Books? | The Chronicle of Higher Education

Who Ought to Underwrite Publishing Scholars’ Books? | The Chronicle of Higher Education | Universal Design for Learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it
By Jennifer Howard 

At almost any gathering of academic publishers or librarians, you’ll hear someone float the idea—sometimes phrased as a question—that the model for publishing scholarly monographs is broken. Two sets of ideas aired at the Association of American University Presses’ annual meeting, held here this week, don’t say the model is damaged beyond repair. But the proposals, both from groups outside the university-press community, suggest that it needs to be retrofitted, at the least.


One possible approach came from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and the other from a task force on scholarly communications run jointly by the Association of American Universities and the Association of Research Libraries. Both raised the question of how to better subsidize the digital publication of scholarly monographs, and both included the notion that faculty authors’ home institutions might do more to help pay for those books to be published. Such support would help deal with what university-press people often call the “free-rider problem,” in which institutions without presses—most of them, in other words—leave it to those with presses to support the system that gives faculty authors publication credentials.

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) means designing curriculum in a way that reduces barriers and supports all learners. This kind of design is vitally important for learners that struggle with disabilities. UDL assumes that the curriculum is the "thing" to be fixed - not the students.

Mel Riddile's curator insight, September 6, 2013 9:16 AM

UDL is an integral part of instructional design and the implementation of the Common Core Standards. School leaders should be aware of the three guidelines of UDL and look for their inclusion in classroom instruction.


Three Guidelines of Universal Design for Learning:
  1. Provide multiple means of representation.
    • Making use of the "multi" in multimedia is a great way to offer multiple means of representing material to students.
  2. Provide multiple means of action and expression.
    • The key here is to offer students a wider variety of options when it comes to showing what they know and understand.
  3. Provide multiple means of engagement.
    • Students will be more engaged in learning when they understand the "why" behind it, when they have clear goals to strive for, and when they feel supported in achieving those goals.

Universal Design for Learning
is a set of principles for curriculum development that give all individuals equal opportunities to learn.

UDL provides a blueprint for creating instructional goals, methods, materials, and assessments that work for everyone--not a single, one-size-fits-all solution but rather flexible approaches that can be customized and adjusted for individual needs.
