Self-Paced: Solving Common Teaching Challenges With Universal Design for Learning and Canvas

Learners are multidimensional and each individual has their own experiences, strengths, and weaknesses in the learning process. The Universal Design for Learning (UDL) Framework aims to optimize teaching and learning by increasing access for all students (CAST, 2018). This Canvas resource will identify specific UDL strategies that can help advance the equity and inclusiveness in courses and contexts, aided by Canvas and integrated tools.

This is not a formal “course” – there is no need to go in any order or to complete all the modules. This course is structured so that you can pick what you need and keep referring back to resources as needed.

This resource is a collaboration between the Center for Advancing Teaching and Learning Through Research (CATLR) and Academic Technologies (AT).
