Equity By Design

UDL for Equity

In this course, we will focus on the connection between UDL and social justice, culturally sustaining pedagogy, impact over intentions, disproportionality, and integrative comprehensive systems. Discussions will focus on identifying and eliminating systemic barriers that result in systems that don't work for all students, especially those who are culturally and linguistically diverse.

What to Expect

Facilitated

  • Eight online learning modules containing videos, resources, and weekly assignments and/or discussions.
  • Direct interaction and feedback from your instructor and the opportunity to build community with your classmates through course discussion boards.
  • Lots of options and choices - UDL is at the foundation of everything we do.
  • Participants will be expected to pass in work by the due date, but will also be given the opportunity to revise and improve upon their work (just as students in their class should be given the same respect using the UDL framework). 
  • All assignments can be resubmitted for feedback and grading up until the last day of the course.
