1.4: Assessment and Resources
Module Activity: Refine Your Definition
Using your definition from the beginning of this module, refine your definition of UDL for your context. It may be helpful for your revised definition to include audience, environment, purpose and specific applications as they apply to your work.
You are invited to reflect in the way that works best for you, which may include writing, drawing, creating an audio or video file, mind map or any other method that will allow you to reflect and refer back to your thoughts.
Alternatively, a text-based note-taking space is provided below. Any notes you take here remain entirely confidential and visible only to you. Use this space as you wish to keep track of your thoughts, learning, and activity responses. Download a text copy of your notes before moving on to the next page of the module to ensure you don’t lose any of your work!
The following are some resources to deepen your learning about UDL and its implementation:
- The Centre for Applied Special Technology (CAST) is the conceptual home of UDL. The About Universal Design for Learning website offers a wealth of resources for both the new and seasoned UDL implementer.
- The ThinkUDL podcast discusses the implementation of UDL in higher education with educators who are designing and developing their curriculum with learner variability as their focus. The examples are relevant, and the discussion is always interesting.
- A portion of the UDL with CTL video was included earlier in the module. You are welcome to access the entire video on Mohawk College’s Universal Design for Learning webpage.
