Designing for Inclusion

Research has shown that learner variability is predictable and can be planned for. With this in mind, how can we as educators proactively plan and design learning experiences that are welcoming, accessible, and engaging for the widest range of learners?

In this course, educators explore how to use Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and inclusive practices to proactively design welcoming learning spaces for all learners.
