You are invited to join a group of faculty who will be reading and discussing the book Universal Design for Learning: Theory and Practice, by Anne Meyer and David Gordon.  

This book has been recommended by leaders in the field of Universal Design for Learning (UDL). UDL is a teaching/learning philosophy that encourages multiple pathways for content, activities and assessments in course design. These pathways support increased student engagement and self-direction, access across multiple platforms, and inclusion of all learners. UDL focuses on three aspects of your classroom:

  • Representation
  • Engagement
  • Action and Expression

By diversifying student options and expectations in each of these areas, you can free students to utilize talents that they would otherwise not have been able to demonstrate.  

The group will be facilitated by our Instructional Accessibility Specialist, Bill Burgess, and will meet three times:  

  • February 13, February 27, and March 13
  • 2:30-3:30 PM
  • LT&ITC, Library 348  

Each participant will be provided with a link to the free online book and access to an audio version through D2L.  

Participation is limited; if you are interested in joining the group, please register as soon as possible.  

If you have questions, contact Sheila Otto at Sheila.Otto@mtsu.edu.
