Universal Design for Learning (UDL) in Management Education: How to Plan and Design a Management Skills Building Course with Variability in Mind
We apply Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles to re-structure a management and team building skills course. UDL principles allow students multiple means of representation, action and expression, and engagement. We focus on bridging two sections of a course originally delivered in hybrid and face-to-face formats and propose a method to apply UDL. In particular, we offer students a choice between course formats while maintaining integrity in content, evaluation, and assessment. Our proposed approach is designed to accommodate different student learning styles while addressing the issue of faculty reluctance to adopt UDL. Further, our paper develops a practical guide to professors seeking to incorporate multiple learning methods and assessments into course design.
