Digital Badge in UDL

Welcome to the National Teaching and Learning Forum's digital badge on Universal Design for Learning (UDL). This badge was developed for the Forum by AHEAD and UCD Access & Lifelong Learning. The concept of the badge is we provide materials and a course design which institutions can then roll out with interested parties in their own institution. Contact the National Teaching and Learning Forum to download the full Course Facilitator's pack with all the instructions and materials required to run this CPD course.

  • An interactive online module introducing UDL (2 hours)
