CAST and Project OPEN Present UDL On Campus
This webinar showcased UDL On Campus, a new web resource from CAST. UDL On Campus is a collection of resources that help postsecondary educators and administrators improve instruction through Universal Design for Learning (UDL). The online resource is provided at no charge to users at http://udloncampus.cast.org. UDL On Campus offers educators tutorials and practical resources in UDL theory and practice across five categories: (1) Assessment, (2) Selecting Media and Technology, (3) Improving Institutional Policies and Practices, (4) Planning Your Course, and (5) Teaching Approaches. Within each category, users can find resources that demonstrate specific ways to address learner variability at the postsecondary level in an effort to improve learning opportunities, retention, and outcomes.
