Course Description: Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a framework to improve and optimize teaching and learning for all students that enables educators to amplify the instructional experience and plan for variability to teach and reach all learners.
UDL Now, by Katie Novak will be provided to all participants.
Other resources will be shared aimed at assisting participants in applying the UDL Principles by providing learners with:
(1) Multiple means of Engagement (the “why” of learning)
(2) Multiple means of Representation (the “what” of learning)
(3) Multiple means of Action and Expression (the “how” of learning)
