Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a framework for the design of materials and instructional methods that are usable by a wide range of students. UDL recognizes that learners differ in the ways in which they navigate a learning environment and express what they know, and that learning systems should accommodate variability among learners from the outset. From these premises is drawn a central principle of UDL: provide students with multiple means of action and expression. One way to do so is to allow students to submit an assignment in one of several media. This workshop uses a major research assignment in History 100: Themes in World History as a case study to explore the ideas around this aspect of UDL. This is an assignment that asks students to document their research in either a 4- to 5-page paper, a food blog, or an 8-minute video. The workshop also explores the logistics of assessing a single assignment submitted in multiple media, with particular attention paid to the use of assessment rubrics.
