A critical addition to the SLC is the recent establishment of the UDL Innovation Studio in 2017. The Studio is a hub where researchers, faculty, clinicians, students, and technology developers can work together to develop new models and practices for educating all students, especially those who have been traditionally marginalized by existing methods and materials.
Foster expert learners who are prepared for the 21st century
Facilitate knowledge transfer and deep learning from Stanford faculty to students
Incorporate UD and UDL into design thinking for students and faculty
Teach broadly about the role of neuroscience in learning, assessment and design ·
Create partnerships with Stanford faculty to rethink course design to foster expert learning and knowledge transfer
Support Stanford faculty through quarter-length coaching with a UDL Specialist from the UDL Innovation Studio
Model the implementation of UDL for faculty at Stanford and other institutions of higher education
Develop and disseminate new knowledge about UDL in higher education
Innovate new ideas and tools to support all individuals
Create partnerships with Stanford students to support the design process using the UDL and UD frameworks
Successfully transition students into the workforce and society as expert learners.
This Studio at Stanford is a first-in-the-nation, replicable model for UDL development for postsecondary institutions, aligned with the National Center on Universal Design for Learning (UDL) at CAST. Stanford students, faculty, and staff are the primary beneficiaries of the Studio’s work.
