Webinar: Universal Design for Learning, Information Literacy, and Libraries

ALA's Reference and User Services Association (RUSA) is sponsoring a webinar next week on Wednesday, April 1 from 1-2:15 p.m. Central Standard Time (CST) on universal design. I just found out about it, so my apologies for the last minute notice. Please note that there is a fee for registration for individuals or groups. 

Overview of Webinar:

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) provides an excellent framework for classroom technique and theory for librarians, instructors, teachers, and professors at all levels. UDL allows learners to more fully engage with information literacy instruction by using good design strategies that allow flexibility and multiple methods of engagement.

This webinar will provide an overview of UDL, its relevance to information literacy programs, and the resources available to librarians. The overview will focus on the basic ideas behind Universal Design for Learning, including its application in K-12 schools and higher education; and research based on neuroscience and psychology. Using the new ACRL Framework as a lens, presenters will provide an introduction to UDL tools and resources.
