Community college courses tend to enroll more diverse and first-generation students than traditional 4-year institutions. For this student population, courses at the community college level are a pathway to increased career success. However, to provide this pathway for students, it is important that courses address all students’ learner variability. Our presentation will demonstrate how UDL removed barriers and increased access for a diverse student population in what has traditionally been a more exclusive space, business education. Ideal participants for this session include higher education faculty, instructional designers, researchers, and college administrators.
The presenters share planning strategies to identify goals, barriers, and ways to overcome those hurdles. Additionally, this session considers the instructional design process executed, such as connecting learner variability to specific UDL checkpoints. Finally, learn how UDL increased student engagement and a sense of belonging.
