Deepen the Learning Experience When You Add UDL to Your Courses
Educators have found success in applying Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles in their classrooms. Student accomplishment, persistence, and satisfaction have increased. Schools retain more students.
It’s only natural that teachers want their courses to have a lasting impact—to extend their accessibility outside of campus and the learning management system.
Finding realistic solutions that address this concern is the subject of How Can I Implement UDL in the Next 20 Days?, the 20-Minute Mentor program from Magna Publications.
Led by Dr. Tom Tobin of Northeastern Illinois University—a specialist in using technology to support higher education for disadvantaged or disabled students—this video reveals ways to add elements of UDL to an entire course that can deepen the learning experience for all students.
You’ll see four effective UDL strategies that go beyond legal compliance requirements. In a direct but genial presentation, Dr. Tobin will show an economical, effective way to build on these UDL strategies for a substantial rollout at your school.
Your course material will come alive for students through a series of video, audio, and text strategies explored in this program. You’ll see how to engage, deepen, and sustain their interest through key assignments and presentations.
In only 20 minutes, you’ll have the tools and a 20-day plan to customize a learning experience for all kinds of students that will last throughout the course and beyond the classroom. Buy your program now.
