Facilitated By: Kelly Nack, Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning & Lynne L'Hommedieu, Student Disability Services

Overall Goal: Build understanding of how applied Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles can improve teaching and learning Specific Objectives of Session:
• Understand the three core Universal Design for Learning principles
• Understand how UDL improves access and learning for all students
• Be able to analyze current course materials to determine where UDL can help
• Know what resources are available to you at CMU and how to access them
• Create an action plan for applying UDL If you were informed that a student in your course needed an accommodation, would you know what to do?

What would it take to ensure that your course materials can be easily accessed by all students? Would you have to recreate all of your course content? This session will help you understand how applying three core Universal Design for Learning principles to your course materials now (before a student needs an accommodation) can increase all of your students’ access to materials and improve learning. You’ll also learn about the helpful services available through the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL) and Student Disability Services before and after you receive any request for student accommodations.

Participant Outcomes/Takeaways: You’ll come away with knowledge about how UDL improves learning for all students, resources for learning more about UDL, contact information for assistance, and an action plan for applying UDL to at least one of your course materials.
