Apply Universal Design for Learning (UDL) to OER

One goal of open education is to lower the cost of education by replacing commercial materials with open educational resources (OER) that are free for students. But access to education isn’t just determined by cost – the design of these resources can also play a huge role in determining access and success.

Often the little changes reap the greatest rewards, so join us to explore how applying Universal Design for Learning (UDL) to OER can help your students. We will explore the different types of barriers that students face, and we will look at how the UDL framework can be applied to the design of OER to reduce barriers for all learners and give students more agency in how they engage with the material.
