Supporting Student Success: Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and Your Library

A session at 2015 Maryland Library Association & Delaware Library Association Joint Annual Conference

  • Sarah Gilchrist
  • Sarah Espinosa

Friday 8th May, 2015

9:30am to 11:30am (EST)

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is an instructional design framework focused on accommodating learner variability, removing unintentional barriers to learning, and developing expert learners. The UDL framework suggests flexible goals, methods, materials, and assessments which transform teaching and learning. The presenters believe that infusing UDL into information literacy instruction supports students’ learning and mastery of critical information literacy concepts. The presenters will model UDL techniques as they introduce the UDL framework, help attendees take stock of their current information literacy instruction methods and introduce resources available to implement information literacy curriculum and assessment. Participants will explore UDL, incorporating the active learning and self reflection that ensure learners’ success.
