Universal Design for Learning Resources

Below you will find a number of universal design for learning (UDL) resources.

Internal Resources

There are a number of UDL resources currently at Mohawk College:

  • UDL consultation and support through the Centre for Teaching and Learning.
  • The UDL Implementation webpage
  • Professional development opportunities found on the CTL calendar.
  • lynda.com - How to Teach Complex Topics course
    • Sections 3 and 4
    • Log in with your Mohawk College email address and password to access
  • Mohawk College course for faculty in eLearn – AODA Accessibility Awareness Training for Educators - AODA Module 2

New resources will be added to this page as they are obtained. If there is a resource you would like included, please contact Darla Benton Kearney, Universal Design for Learning Curriculum Consultant, in the Centre for Teaching and Learning, at darla.benton [at] mohawkcollege.ca () or extension 3688.

Universal design for learning and the accessibility requirements of the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) are distinct from each other.  However, if you are developing alternate resource options for students, you will want to take accessibility into consideration. For more information on creating accessible documents, please review the “Accessible Documents and Alternate Format” resources on the AODA “Tool and Resources” webpage.
