UDL: Representation: Perception

154 Learners | 155 Completed Lessons | 78 Hours of Learning Time

Learning Activity

Learning is impossible if information is imperceptible to the learner, and difficult when information is presented in formats that require extraordinary effort or assistance. To reduce barriers to learning, it is important to ensure that key information is equally perceptible to all learners by: 1) providing the same information through different modalities (e.g., through vision, hearing, or touch); 2) providing information in a format that will allow for adjustability by the user (e.g., text that can be enlarged, sounds that can be amplified). Such multiple representations not only ensure that information is accessible to learners with particular sensory and perceptual disabilities, but also easier to access and comprehend for many others.(udlguidelines.cast.org)

In this activity, we will dive deeper into the UDL Framework Guideline, Representation and learn more about Perception: Interact with flexible content that doesn't depend on a single sense like sight, hearing, movement, or touch.
