Abstract

This design case details the design and development of the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) Academy, a two-phase training to guide community college faculty in applying the UDL framework to their instruction. This article focuses on the first phase, in which faculty were trained in UDL. The authors of this paper, who were the creators and instructional designers of the UDL Academy, guided faculty as they analyzed their instructional practices through the lens of the UDL framework and designed revisions to their courses. Based on faculty participant responses to the first UDL Academy post-training questionnaire, changes were made to the training when it was offered a second time. Participant responses to a questionnaire after the second UDL Academy indicated these changes improved the training. Suggestions for implementing a similar training at other institutions are provided.
