Universal Design for Learning
Schools today are more diverse than ever, with students arriving in your classroom from very different backgrounds and with widely differing ability levels, interests and foundational skills. To meet these challenges, Universal Design for Learning – or UDL – has emerged as an effective framework for the tailoring of goals, methods, materials and assessments to best serve each individual student. UDL is an evidence-based best practice, and it works because it corresponds to the way the brain works. This course will introduce school staff to Universal Design for Learning, a set of principles for designing and implementing instruction that provides all students with equal opportunities to learn.
