About the Book
Delivering Inclusive and Impactful Instruction is a comprehensive and easy to understand introduction to implementing Universal Design for Learning (UDL) in the physical or virtual classroom. Focusing on the application of practical strategies, techniques and methods, the book aims to be the definitive teacher education text for higher education professionals new to teaching in higher education, and new to UDL. This book will also support enhancements in the practice of the most experienced and seasoned teaching staff when it comes to implementing UDL instructional design.
Based on an approach to instructional design utilized at De Montfort University, Delivering Inclusive and Impactful Instruction provides the pedagogic blueprint detailing how a large and exceptionally diverse UK higher education institution successfully adopted UDL as its approach to learning, teaching, and assessment.
Kevin L. Merry shows how educators can respond to increasing levels of learner diversity – a means of creating highly differentiated, customizable learning experiences that reflect the needs and preferences of diverse learners. Critical topics addressed include goal-oriented learning, learning activities, assessment, feedback, planning teaching and opportunities and outlets for reflection and development.
This book will be of particular interest to higher education professionals, including teaching staff, course leaders, learning technologists, educational developers, curriculum design specialists, quality assurance and enhancement specialists, senior academic leaders and managers, or anyone with an interest in higher education instructional design.
Delivering Inclusive and Impactful Instruction is available in print (240 pages, 7.5x9.25", ISBN: 9781943085040) and accessible EPUB (ISBN: 9781943085057) wherever books are sold!
