Over this eight-week period, participants will look at UDL Guidelines in action, develop a “UDL” friendly syllabus, look at supporting engagement as well as other topics. You will find this book is geared toward instruction for the more mature learner it would be beneficial for developing and implementing virtual courses for secondary students.
