About the Book

You know that Universal Design for Learning (UDL) can improve teaching and learning in higher education. You want to share UDL’s innovative best practices on campus and throughout your institution. Yet getting buy-in for trying new approaches can be tough given the many different stakeholder interests represented by faculty, departments, and administrative offices. You can feel like you are navigating through dark, rocky shoals.

That’s where this book can help. Jodie Black and Eric J. Moore have been at the vanguard of UDL implementation at their respective institutions. In UDL Navigators in Higher Education: A Field Guide, they share strategies and resources for introducing UDL to postsecondary systems. Topics include …

  • Program-level design
  • Course-level design
  • Instructional experience
  • Technology selection and use
  • Accessibility services
  • Professional learning

Since no two postsecondary institutions are alike, Black and Moore group their advice in themes that can be transferred and tailored to address the particular needs, culture, and values of your setting. UDL Navigators in Higher Education: A Field Guide—don’t set off without it! 

UDL Navigators in Higher Education is the third title in the CAST Skinny Books™ series. 

UDL Navigators in Higher Education: A Field Guide is available in paperback ($12.00, 126 pages, ISBN: 9781930583450) and accessible EPUB ($12.00, ISBN: 9781930583467) format.
