HDI to Present 'Universal Design for Learning' Seminar

Published: Jan 15, 2013
LEXINGTON, Ky. (Jan. 15, 2013) — The Human Development Institute at the University of Kentucky (HDI) will present a free seminar about Universal Design for Learning, from 1-3 p.m. Friday, Feb. 15, in the conference room of the UK Mineral Industries Building.

 

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a professional development concept that strives to make learning accessible to all students, no matter their individual backgrounds.

 

This seminar will provide participants with a framework and skills to incorporate UDL strategies in the postsecondary setting, as well as a basic "tool kit" of skills to use when approaching teaching and learning. Participants will also be presented with examples of innovative uses of UDL elements in higher education.

 

The lead presenter will be Molly Boyle, project coordinator for the Equity and Excellence Project at the University of Massachusetts Boston. She provides professional development training and technical assistance to college faculty, administrators and disability support personnel around Universal Course Design, promoting effective teaching strategies to ensure equal access for all students, including those with disabilities.

 

In addition to the main seminar site on the UK campus, video-conference sites will be available around the city and at locations throughout the state. Space is limited and advance registration is required. Those who wish to attend may register online at http://www.hdi.uky.edu/news/events.  Attendance site must be selected at time of registration; if a site is full, you will have the option to select another site.

 

HDI's seminar series is open to faculty, staff, and students, as well as self-advocates, parents/caregivers and professionals statewide. Continuing education units may be available.  Please contact Marybeth Vallance at marybeth.vallance@uky.edu if your site wishes to host a live video-conference in your community.
