Universal Design for Learning is often thought of as a framework only for classroom teachers or professors. But what about UDL in the workplace? We learn all the time in our workplaces, through training, learning new strategies, new technologies, and when we change careers. All of those learning experiences can benefit from a more inclusive and goal-oriented framework for planning and designing the learning that happens in a workplace.
Here were our questions to prompt our thinking:
- Q1: Can you point to an example of where you may have seen UDL outside of education?
- Q2: What would a UDL school office have in it?
- Q3: What benefits are there to having work spaces embrace UDL?
- Q4: What UDL inspired idea would you like to see in a workplace for yourself or your students?
Our participants offered some fabulous insights and ideas for bringing UDL into the world of work.
