Universal Design for Learning: How to Improve Satisfaction and Retention for Students at All Learning Levels
Improve student satisfaction, persistence, and retention with UDL
Universal Design for Learning (UDL) isn’t just for students with disabilities. This has been a common misconception about UDL in the past. But UDL actually can help all students be better learners.
The increased (and increasing) diversity of students at colleges and universities means learning needs to be flexible enough to accommodate that diversity. A one-size-fits-all approach to teaching doesn’t take students with different abilities or learning styles into consideration. But that’s where UDL comes in.
Universal Design for Learning provides students with more choices about and control over how, and even when, they learn. Whether it’s choosing the way they get the information you offer, having options for staying engaged, or choosing how they show just how well they learn, UDL gives all students a better chance to be successful.
So what’s the best way to introduce UDL to your students? How can UDL improve student satisfaction and retention? And what’s the best way to encourage adoption of UDL at the administrative level of your institution?
Get answers to these questions and more when you order the online seminar from Magna Publications, Universal Design for Learning: How to Improve Satisfaction and Retention for Students at All Learning Levels. Listen as Thomas Tobin, PhD, a UDL expert, offers insight into UDL and how it works. You’ll learn how UDL helps improve the interactions you have with students and how those improvements can increase student retention, persistence, and satisfaction across all kinds of learners. And by planning your courses from the start to meet the needs of all students, you avoid having to deal with individual accommodations, which gives you even more time to spend with your students.
After participating in this online seminar, you will be able to:
- Improve interactions with students by using UDL
- Implement campus-wide UDL at your college or university
- Use UDL to increase access for students on mobile devices
- Create interactions that will encourage students to stick with a course and return next semester
- Structure your courses to include at least one alternative way of learning
- Advocate for the adoption of UDL at the administrative level of your institution
Whether you’re a staff member at a teaching center or in media services, instructional designer, faculty-support staff, department chair, or dean—anyone who wants a better understanding of Universal Design for Learning and how it can be implemented—this is one webinar that could improve the way you teach and the way your students learn.
Order today and you’ll learn how UDL helps improve the interactions you have with students and how those improvements can increase student retention, persistence, and satisfaction across all kinds of learners.
