Designing Inclusive Courses for Diverse Learners: Using Universal Design for Learning Principles

Course Description

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a theoretical framework rooted in the neuroscience of learning and use of technology, which can be used by educators to guide the structural design of courses, assessments, and learning environments (Meyer et al., 2014). UDL offers educators flexible guidelines on how to proactively make their course(s) more accessible, useable, and inclusive, regardless of learner diversity, minimizing the need for academic accommodations, while offering the benefits to all learners. As post-secondary nursing education learner diversity has become the norm, it is essential that nurse educators in these settings create an inclusive learning environment to optimize their potential and success. An inclusive learning environment involves offering equitable opportunities for everyone to succeed. Learner success hinges on accessibility to course resources and the comprehension of this material. In this course, nurse educators will explore key concepts and principles associated with the UDL framework, while further establishing how these guidelines can be integrated into the proactive design of a curriculum to support the success of diverse learner populations in post-secondary environments.
