Universal design for learning (UDL) has been defined as “…a set of principles for curriculum development that give all individuals equal opportunities to learn.” (The Center for Applied Special Technology, 2016) For many the example of curb cuts, or the cutouts in road or sidewalk curbs to allow wheelchairs to pass, provide one of the most concrete examples of this principle. Although originally proposed to allow easier access for individuals in wheelchairs, these indentions have become essential for parents struggling with strollers, workers delivering packages and many others alike. Applying this principle to the design of instruction is helping to move educators away from designing instruction to meet specific learning needs, and toward designing in a way that allows users to access materials and complete assignments in the way that makes most sense for them.(Rose, Harbour, Johnston, Daley, & Abarbanell, 2006)
Learning Objectives:
  • Describe the principles of universal design for learning (UDL)
  • Identify methods to determine where UDL may be most effective in improving student learning
  • Identify appropriate media tools and/or techniques which incorporate UDL principle

For instructors, one of the most challenging tasks can be assessing to what degree our students have achieved their objectives - throughout the term. (Before that big test, or certification opportunity!) CATs or Classroom Assessment techniques are generally simple, non-graded, anonymous activities designed to give you and your student’s useful feedback on the teaching-learning process as it is happening. In this course, we will explore how to incorporate these techniques in an online, hybrid or face to face environment. This course will be based on the material found in Classroom Assessment Techniques, A Handbook for College Teachers by Thomas A. Angelo and K. Patricia Cross. A copy of this book is incredibly helpful to complete the course, but not completely necessary. We have supplemented the course with alternative web resources, should you not have a copy available. Or you can access the book in the Holt Library, or borrow a copy from the Center for Teaching Excellence in Bradford Hall - Room 306. This course is designed to take about 4 hours to complete over a two week period. Please note that the time it takes to finish the workshop will depend upon your level of experience (and curiosity).
Learning Objectives:
  • Describe the characteristics of classroom assessment
  • Describe a Classroom Assessment Technique (CAT)
  • Identify potential results of planning on a CAT implementation
  • Discuss how you will respond to the results of a CAT
  • Plan how/if you will implement a Classroom Assessment Technique (C
