CPASS Physical Education and Kinesiology Assistant Professor Samantha Ross is one
of seven WVU faculty selected to receive Universal Design of Learning grant. The
grants, provided by WVU Teaching and Learning Commons, include a stipend of $3,500
to support design or redesign of courses to meet the principles of UDL.
As a teacher-researcher, Ross says that she is motivated to implement and evaluate
evidence-based practices to her classrooms and the preparation of future physical
activity professionals. “Applying Universal design for learning principles to the
classroom strengthens my direct support of student learning and provides student’s
personalized pathways to success. As a third-year faculty, I am still developing
as a teacher,” she said.
