Universal Design for Learning
In the book, Design and Deliver: planning and teaching using universal design for learning, the authors describe UDL as a framework for designing. They point out that “you seek to design the space in which you teach and the lessons you provide using the variety of options suggested within the framework. Then implement those options and reflect on your student’s participation and outcomes.”
At the core of design, it’s ultimately about
“providing consciously selected and research options to all students, so they can ultimately learn to
guide their own learning.” (Rose, 2014) I found this to be a very simple description of the goal of distance learning. We are seeking to design and instruct in such a way so that learning takes place, and we produce lifelong learners, who can become independent, actively navigating their own learning.
