In this workshop, we will give an overview of disabilities among the DePaul student body and their experience based on relevant statistics. We will also present an overview of the CSD program, the process for students to become eligible for accommodations and how to talk with a student who they feel may benefit from CSD services.
Universal design is one way to support DePaul’s mission to “serve students who vary in age, ability, experience, and career interests." The universal design for learning (UDL) framework provides a blueprint for creating instructional goals and materials, teaching methods, and assessments that work for nearly everyone--not a single, one-size-fits-all solution but rather flexible approaches that can be customized and adjusted for individual needs. While UDL is often associated with instruction for students with disabilities for course accessibility, UDL principles are applicable to a wide range of learning styles and ways of knowing. In this session, participants will be introduced to the UDL framework and will apply its principles to an element of an existing course. They will come away from the workshop with strategies to incorporate UDL principles into online/hybrid and face to face courses.
Facilitated by Erin Kasprzak (Center for Teaching and Learning), Lisa Ramos-Torrescano (Center for Teaching and Learning), and Lavonne Kopca (Center for Students with Disabilities)
