My Experience

 

 

Professional Statement

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) “focuses on minimizing barriers through implementing designs from the beginning that address the needs of diverse people rather than making accommodations through individual adaption later.” (Rose, Harbour, Johnston, Daley, & Abarbannell, 2006)

 

As I continue to grow in the Instructional Design profession whether as a designer or instructor, my primary focus is to apply the AECT Standards, especially Standard 3 (Learning Environments) by fostering a learning community that empowers learners with diverse backgrounds and characteristics (AECT Standards, 2012).  My plan includes maintaining AECT membership as well as volunteering on subcommittees and attending the annual meeting.
