Let’s Read and Discuss: Universal Design for Learning

Facilitator: Stephen Politzer-Ahles, CBS
Date:19 Oct 2018
Time:12:30 PM - 2:00 PM

Universal Design for Learning is the process of designing educational activities to be accessible for people with a diverse range of abilities, rather than designing subjects for "typical" students and making accommodations when necessary. This makes the university more inclusive for people who are disabled, and it improves the quality of teaching and learning for all students. In this session we will share ideas for how to redesign learning activities and assessments according to principles of Universal Design for Learning.

Please bring a copy of a course outline / syllabus / DPD of a subject you teach (if any). Alternatively, you may e-mail a soft copy to the facilitator (sjpolit@polyu.edu.hk) and we will print copies for you to use during the workshop.
