Changing Your Beliefs and Your Classroom with UDL

Sometimes we do things in a certain way simply out of habit. But breaking habits is necessary to advance our teaching practices into an ever-evolving educational landscape. In order to evolve so that we can support every student, we first need to unlearn.

The process of unlearning can be uncomfortable, like getting a new phone with a new platform, or having to retrain yourself not to touch your face but this discomfort is necessary for growth. We must change our mindsets to change the larger system.

Through Unlearning, we explore how implementing Universal Design for Learning (UDL) requires us to unlearn many outdated beliefs, assumptions, and teaching practices and provide you with the tools to take your practice into the 21st Century.
