UDL Now! Part II

Putting Theory Into Practice

This level 2 course is for educators who have an understanding of Universal Design for Learning but are looking to take the next step on their UDL journey.

Through out the course, educators will move from UDL theory to the implementation of UDL in their classrooms and answer questions like, “Where do I get started?” and “What does UDL look like?” As educators, we want to encourage our students to make choices, take risks, and learn from their mistakes. To get started with implementing UDL, we must model this practice and understand that every trial won’t be a success. By embodying expert learning and a growth mindset, we will learn and adapt and eventually reach our goals.

We will explore options for diving deeper into UDL lesson design and instruction. Together, we will unpack lesson plans, dive into universally designed learning strategies, and discuss tools and scaffolds that can support you on your UDL implementation journey. 

Topics covered include:

  • Universally Designing Lessons & Instruction
  • Creating Firm Goals with Flexible Means
  • Creating Equitable Assessments the UDL Way
  • Creating Equitable Materials the UDL Way
  • Utilizing Equitable Methods to Engage Your Learners
  • Creating an Equitable Physical Space
  • Supporting Self-Regulation
  • Reflection: Expert Teaching and Expert Learning
