Strategies for Getting Administrative and Faculty Buy-In for UDL

The twentieth century saw access to higher education broaden in several significant ways. Formerly under-served populations of students were the targets of concentrated efforts to provide opportunities for college study: women, veterans, first-generation college learners, students from disadvantaged socioeconomic backgrounds, people with disabilities. To help make educational materials and teaching practices inclusive for all learners, this webinar radically reflects on how to motivate and inspire colleges and universities to adopt Universal Design for Learning (UDL).

Presented by Thomas Tobin, the Coordinator of Learning Technologies in the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) at Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago, this webinar will explore strategies for getting administrative and faculty buy-in for UDL. Thomas will focus on key shifts to make at your institution that will help demonstrate a measurable return on the investment of UDL.

This presentation will cover:

  • Training staff in Universal Design for Learning (UDL)
  • How to use UDL principles to increase student retention, persistence, and satisfaction
  • Motivating the adoption of UDL as part of campus culture
  • Getting administrative, budgetary, and faculty buy-in for UDL
  • How to expand the use of UDL elements beyond the legally required minimum
