Affecting Student Attitudes: What Universal Design for Learning Can Teach Us
Tuesday, 4/9/2013 ~ 1:00-2:00 PM
Please join us for today's webinar where Kimberly Fields will provide an overview of universal design for learning (UDL), a framework that supports an inclusive approach for designing learning materials and activities that are accessible to diverse student populations. UDL encourages educators to provide multiple means of engagement. Its guidelines and strategies can help improve student engagement by focusing on the relationship between student attitude and success. Fields will discuss ways to improve student attitudes from two perspectives. The first is to incorporate choice, a highly motivating factor, into course design. The second is to offer students metacognitive activities to encourage them to realize and address their own attitudes toward learning.
Presenter: Kimbery Fields, eLearning Coordinator, State of Wyoming
