Book Description

The Universal Design for Learning (UDL) for Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Accessibility (IDEA) project was a collaboration between 10 universities and colleges across Ontario to develop a 6-module open educational resource for post-secondary educators.  The open courseware provides educators with an introduction to Universal Design for Learning, the responsibilities of educators under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) and the Ontario Human Rights Code, considerations for equity, diversity and inclusion in educational settings, and Indigenous pedagogies and their relationship to UDL. The resource is designed as an accessible entrance point for all PSE educators and an invitation to learn more about these critically important topics. It is also designed to be used as the basis for local training professional development on these topics, which may be recognised in many ways, including as a microcredential.
