Designing Assignments that Work For All

Tuesday, April 03 2012 @ 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM

This workshop addresses principles of universal design for learning, by looking at ways assignments can be created for the diverse student population. Join with colleagues to explore the ways writing assignments can be constructed to enhance the learning of all students. Looking at some basic principles of curriculum and assignment design, we will identify ways that writing assignments can be supported with a range of flexible activities. Participants will have the chance to explore how writing assignments help students learn material as well as how writing assignments ask students to represent what they have already learned.

This event is a part of the 5th Annual BlackBoard Jungle Symposium and UVM Professional Development Series (
