UDL Micro-Course

SF State students in class.

The CEETL Universal Design for Learning (UDL) Micro-Course focuses on strategies for developing coursework, choosing resources and designing anti-racist programs that consider the wide variability of learners in higher education. Note, micro-courses are short courses that focus on one topic. The format is primarily asynchronous with one optional Zoom session, where faculty can share synchronous teaching strategies with colleagues.

In the UDL Micro-Course, participants will:

  • Identify the objectives and principles of UDL.
  • Explain how UDL may enhance inclusivity and anti-racist pedagogy.
  • Apply real-world practices for humanizing instruction and activities.
  • Apply UDL to course outcomes, presentation of material, student engagement, assignments, assessments and students’ articulation of learning.

Engage in a minimum of four hours of activity within the course; and submit a short reflection.

All stipends for CEETL course completions by eligible participants are processed through payroll and are subject to tax, so the final amount and timing for stipend payments may vary according to individual tax rates and employment status with the university. To monitor incoming payments, we recommend you turn on your bank notifications to get alerts on your accounts. All members of the SF State teaching community are welcome to engage in and complete CEETL faculty development courses for a certificate, but due to CSU policy the following appointments will not be eligible to receive a stipend: MPPs, Staff, FERP faculty, and individuals not actively employed at SF State.
