    In partnership with Brightspace™ by D2L and ReadSpeaker, AST presented a free webinar entitled Equal Access to Education: How Universal Design for Learning can Improve Learning Outcomes. Instructional designers know that no two students have the same learning styles. In this webinar we covered how to use Universal Design for Learning (UDL), a framework for designing accessible and inclusive educational materials and instructions. This educational framework ensures students have equal access to different formats of learning materials which will meet their needs for their particular preferences and learning styles.

    Webinar speakers included two institutions, Ryerson University and The Virtual High School, who discussed their personal experiences with UDL, particularly in online learning, and how they have found it benefits a wider range of students.

    Highlights include: 

    • UDL best practices and its positive effects on learning
    • Examples of how providing multiple representations of content (such as captions for video, or TTS for text) provides better outcomes for all students
    • UDL elements in Brightspace that allow institutions to more easily personalize the learning experience for each student
