Striving for Inclusive Teaching in the Health Professions through Universal Design for Learning

March 7, 2023 | 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a set of principles for designing curriculum that aims to provide all individuals with equal learning opportunities, regardless of (dis)ability, gender, age, or cultural background. UDL encourages educators to undertake the design process by expecting the curriculum to be accessed by diverse learners with varying abilities and skills. This interactive workshop will be facilitated by Larry Hurtubise, PhD and Amy Jauch, DNP, RN, CNE Assistant Clinical Professor in the College of Nursing. They will discuss evidence-based strategies for implementing UDL in Health Professions courses.

After this workshop participants will be able to: 

  • Discuss the evidence of the need for Universal Design for Learning (UDL).
  • Describe the tenets of UDL.
  • Apply UDL strategies in their own courses.
