Creators: Earl, Sandra
Abstract:

This research paper and the accompanying prototype (demonstrate and explain a lesson planning guide that supports the design and implementation of curricula that adhere to the principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL). It argues that existing UDL planning and implementation resources are not well-integrated within educators existing practices and tend to lack comprehensive support related to creating diverse, accessible content. The prototype demonstrates integration of a UDL guide into a Learning Management System (LMS) and the use of existing Open Educational Resources (OER) to structure and scaffold the choices and workflows presented to educators. In particular, it showcases how dividing design and implementation decisions into steps, promoting best practices through templates and making it easy to share work increases the viability of educators creating and using content and teaching methodologies that align with the principles of UDL.
