Description
Implementing an effective inclusive learning initiative might be a new or unfamiliar process. Creating buy-in from campus leadership, creating faculty awareness, redesigning courses, and tracking progress are just a few of the steps necessary to help drive a cultural shift in how faculty approach accessibility and universal design. How do institutions prioritize their efforts for universal design for learning? What impact does professional development for faculty have on accessible course materials? It is critical for universities to shift to meet the needs of a variety of students. This includes race, social class, ethnicity, cognitive differences, gender, families, and many more. At the university level we should embrace these changes and take steps toward believing that diversity makes us stronger. If we believe that working to make changes, to create pathways for all students to be successful, and to provide rigorous content is important then we must take that step. UDL is a platform for building that step; for raising people up, expanding opportunity, and creating an environment for divergent thinking. And at its core, this is what a university should be providing its students. For many universities, implementing an effective inclusive learning initiative may be a new or unfamiliar process. Creating buy-in from campus leadership, creating faculty awareness, and tracking progress are just a few of the steps necessary to help drive a cultural shift.
