Bringing Your UDL Practice to the Next Level

Take the Next Step Towards Eliminating Inequities in Schools.

UDL is an educational framework that can be used to eliminate barriers to learning, embrace variability in learners, and eliminate inequitable opportunities for students. This course is for educators who have some basic knowledge and understanding of UDL but want to move their UDL practice from the emerging level towards proficiency. 

 In this course, teachers and administrators will have an opportunity to dive deeper into the UDL framework to scale and optimize UDL implementation in their learning environment. We will explore social injustice, UDL culture and climate, culturally responsive teaching techniques, and implicit bias through the UDL lens. Educators will learn how to embrace their UDL failures as part of the learning experience and embrace UDL best practices to proactively design learning environments academically, behaviorally, and social-emotionally that help eliminate inequities in schools.
