Flexible Doesn't Have to Mean Wishy-Washy: Incorporating Universal Design for Learning Principles into Your Teaching while Maintaining Rigor

STELAR instructional designer Karin Brown focuses on the Multiple Means of Action and Expression (MMAE) guideline from the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework. While MMAE covers a range of topics, this session will focus on creating and fairly assessing activities that give students a choice in how they show what they know (papers, exams, projects, presentations, tech tools, etc.). Attendees will get a basic overview of what MMAE entails and how it can be implemented in a course or program without diluting the content.

Learning Outcomes:

Faculty & Staff can expect to leave the session having achieved the following outcomes:

  • Identify when and how to implement Multiple Means of Action and Expression (MMAE) into a class, lesson, or activity. 
  • Explain methods of implementing MMAE while maintaining the integrity of assessments
  • Modify an assessment or activity using the MMAE guidelines

Please register for this session through Leadership Academy. For questions, please contact Karin Brown.
