NUDL

What is NUDL?

NUDL is a project where AccessibleNU works with instructors to help redesign aspects of their courses to adhere to the principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL).

NUDL was piloted with six faculty members, one from each school on the Evanston campus, in summer 2017. This pilot was made possible by a gift from the Alumnae of Northwestern. The cohort was increased to ten faculty for NUDL2 in summer 2018. NUDL2 was supported with funds from the Associated Student Government. Faculty who participated in both cohorts committed to the following:

  • Choose a course for Fall Quarter to redesign using elements of UDL
  • Participate in five 1.5 hour training/discussion sections on UDL
  • Complete weekly reading and homework assignments associated with trainings
  • Submit plans for implementing UDL for discussion
  • Submit UDL artifacts
  • Submit reflections on implementing UDL in the class
