The Student Accessibility Centre will host a webinar entitled, An Innovative Approach to Universal Design Learning: Engaging All Learners on Thursday, July 12, from 2 - 3 p.m. (with optional 30-minute post webinar discussion), in Marshall d'Avray Hall, 249.

Traditionally, Universal Design Learning (UDL) has been viewed solely as an accessibility approach, but it also represents an innovative opportunity to remove barriers and engage students of all learning styles.

This webcast will introduce you to a new way of applying UDL to your teaching. The expert instructor will engage you in a hands-on activity around two core components of the classroom: 1) analysis and evaluation of learning objectives, and 2) assessment of student learning. You will leave equipped with practical steps you can take to apply UDL methods and materials to your work in those areas.

Instructor: Eric J. Moore, UDL and Accessibility Specialist, University of Tennessee

Eric is a professional educator with over a decade of experience in the classroom ranging from teaching drama and English in Kokomo, Indiana to teaching literature and philosophy in international schools in Indonesia and South Korea. Eric holds a Ph.D. in Inclusive Education from UT, Knoxville, a M.Ed from Grand Valley State University, and B.A. in Secondary English Education from Taylor University.
