Inspire Me: Increasing Authentic Engagement with Intentional Design

Session Description: Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is based on a theory that any tool, asset, or scaffold which has been shown to benefit some learners should be available to all learners.

This session will bridge UDL theory with practical implementation strategies for increasing student engagement in online and blended learning environments. Participants will learn about the concepts that underpin UDL, the pedagogical value for utilizing a UDL approach and leave with strategies for immediate implementation.
