Course Description

An inclusive course design requires attention to the selection of course materials, your teaching methods, and the ways you ask students to demonstrate their learning. In this interactive workshop, we will provide strategies for building a diverse, equitable, and inclusive course using the principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL). UDL is a framework that empowers students from diverse backgrounds to actively participate in their courses and more effectively interpret and apply their learning in a collaborative setting. 

By the end of this workshop, you will be able to: 

  1. Examine the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion in online courses 
  2. Explain the three principles of UDL and how the principles can be applied to course design 
  3. Apply UDL guidelines to create a more diverse, equitable, and inclusive course climate 

Note: This workshop will be limited to a minimum of five (5) registered participants and a maximum of twenty (20) registered participants. If a quorum of five hasn’t been established by 2 days prior to the session, we will cancel the workshop and notify registrants. Once the workshop reaches capacity, additional registrants will be automatically added to a waitlist.

For faculty/staff outside of LSU A&M: To register, please use your @lsu.edu credentials (i.e., the credentials you use when you log into myLSU), not your campus email address.
