Inclusive Pedagogy at Merrimack College

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) helps to minimize barriers and maximize learning for all students.

How can you make your online course more inclusive?

1.) Display content in a variety of ways.  Provide images, text, multimedia, and use your creative style to capture the learner’s attention.

2.) Accept a variety of formats from your learners over the duration of your course.  Give your students a variety of modalities to prove their command of the subject.  

3.) Fuel creativity in your students by allowing them to explore topics in a variety of ways.  Encouraging student exploration will add to their engagement.
