The UDL Framework: In module 1 you’ll learn what UDL is and is not.
You will recognize it as a system change that embraces equity and inclusion
(not just another initiative!).
Variability, Barriers and Expert Learning: UDL requires us to shift
conventional thinking about instruction -- to remove barriers, embrace learning
variability and eliminate the myth of the average student. You will also discover that
barriers are found in the learning environment and not the students. We will delve into the characteristics of expert learners and strategies that support expert learning.
Research Based Guidelines: We’ll explore the UDL Guidelines...specific
research-based strategies to support all learners that are based on
what we know about how we learn.
Plan & Apply: UDL starts at the lesson planning stage. It requires teachers to
intentionally set clear goals, provide flexible assessments, and provide flexible
methods and materials in designing instruction.
