Abstract

The aim of UDL2 was to manage the transition of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) to the academic, cultural, quality and operational infrastructure created by the first phase of the project, which rolled out UDL principles across DMU. The overall aim is to ensure that the UDL framework is embedded as part of the DMU student experience by September 2020.

This interim report gives an overview of the evaluation work stream so far. This includes the collection of qualitative data via interviews with key stakeholders, a workshop with DMU staff and analysis of relevant documents. Quantitative data on student good honours, continuation and satisfaction, as well as data relating to DMU Replay has also been collected. The purpose of this work was to ascertain the impact of UDL at DMU on staff and student stakeholders, and the extent to which it has been embedded across the institution at a range of levels.
