A range of resources are available to support and improve your Universal Design for Learning (UDL) practice. We encourage you to explore these to create a toolkit of strategies and methods that work for you and your learners.
Taking a look at UDL on an international stage, these podcasts are conversations with international educators involved in the implementation of UDL in Ireland and the United States.
Practical applications of UDL in relation to assistive technology, assessment and institutional implementation. In October 2023 ADCET hosted a UDL Symposium, the presentations were recorded and can be accessed on the UDL Symposium page.
Checklists and Templates
UDL is a mindset rather than a checklist, but learning resources, rubrics, checklists and templates can be valuable when starting out. Like UDL, these are not a one-size-fits-all solution. Some of them will be relevant, others won’t, and some may only have small components that are useful in your educational setting. It’s up to you to decide what will work for you and your learners.
Resources related to UDL Checklists and Templates
We have invited members of the tertiary education sector to share examples of work they have undertaken to implement UDL in their practice. Below are six case studies across the VET, dual sector and Higher Education institutions where teams have implemented UDL strategies as part of their practice, what they have learned and what the impact is.
- Case Study 1: The intersection of UDL and cultural safety for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander learners
- Case Study 2: Understanding UDL (Universal Design for Learning)
- Case Study 3: Empowering all learners: UDL strategies to improve engagement and academic performance
- Case Study 4: UDL and Assistive Technology to support students with disability – an international perspective
- Case Study 5: Designing for Diversity: adopting a new mindset
- Case Study 6: Implementing UDL to support diverse learners in enabling programs
