Universal Design for Learning (UDL) to Support all Learners

23 September 2020

How do we keep learners in training for longer?  What can we do to try to meet the diverse needs of our students?

The Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a supportive outline allowing development of Reasonable Adjustments tools, strategies and resources for learners with diverse needs allowing assistance for everyone in the learning community.

This webinar explores modifications of training resources using UDL principles allowing trainers to meet the diverse cross-section of a learning environment in developing training goals, methods, materials, and assessments.

With an attrition rate of more than 25% of Australian adult-learners, the UDL model can help to reduce this staggering statistic and keep learners in training longer by educators learning how to combine the UDL framework to encourage successful completion of goals or qualifications.

Key topics covered within the webinar

  • Modification of training resources using UDL principles
  • Representation of delivery content
  • Expression of knowledge
  • Engagement of learners’ interests
