Abstract

In this presentation, librarians from Briar Cliff University will discuss two one-credit information literacy courses and their techniques for incorporating the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework. When the courses were redesigned, librarians included multiple formats and modalities of course materials. Additionally, students were empowered through providing multiple options for course assignments. The syllabi were also updated with UDL practices in mind. Attendees will learn about incorporating the UDL framework in order to make courses inclusive and accessible to all students. Attendees will also brainstorm how to implement the UDL framework in their own courses. There will be time for attendees to work on updating one assignment or part of a syllabus in a brief activity before Q&A time.
