Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a framework for the design of materials and instructional methods that are usable by a wide range of students. UDL recognizes that learners differ in the ways in which they navigate a learning environment and express what they know, and that learning systems should accommodate variability among learners from the outset. From these premises is drawn a central principle of UDL: provide students with multiple means of action and expression. One way to do so is to allow students to submit an assignment in one of several media. This facilitated, asynchronous online workshop focuses on a major research assignment in History 100: Themes in World History, one that asks students to document their research in either a 4- to 5-page paper, a food blog, or an 8-minute video. The workshop also explores the logistics of assessing a single assignment submitted in multiple media, with particular attention paid to the use of assessment rubrics. The workshop will require approximately two hours to complete.
Facilitated by Kevin Wilson (IDEA Shop) and Erik Hadley (History)
