Using Universal Design for Learning principles to create an inclusive online course

Presented by Dr Sue O'Neill, School of Education and Lyn Collins, Engineering.

This interactive workshop is designed for course convenors interested in making their online courses as accessible as possible to the diversity of students who enrol in their courses.  The presentation will demonstrate how the principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) can be built into online courses developed in Moodle, not only in the delivery of content, but in offering students multiple means of engaging with content, and demonstrating their knowledge via assessments. UDL principles improve the learning environment for all students.
The UDL approach is supported by neuroscience research, and offers course convenors a sound option to meet the accessibility requirements of their course required under the Disability Standards for Education (2005), that all education sectors must abide by. The presenters will demonstrate ways educators can enhance their online courses using existing tools within Moodle, and current challenges that exist within Moodle when incorporating a UDL approach to design. The presenters will demonstrate how they built UDL principles into an Inclusive education course.
