We know from experience and neuroscience that individuals learn in varied ways. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) provides educators with practical strategies and techniques to ensure that all learners can meet high expectations, such as the Common Core State Standards. In this introductory session participants learn the research basis for UDL, practical applications of UDL to lesson design, and helpful technology tools that support flexible, inclusive instruction.
Using the UDL framework and its practical guidelines, participants will gain:
  • A working knowledge of the neuroscience of learning and how individual variability plays out in different educational environments
  • Guidelines and techniques to apply UDL principles to the design of lessons and curriculum units
  • Strategies on how to improve classroom practice and school culture by raising awareness of variability and UDL
  • Access to and tips on using flexible instructional tools such as CAST learning, authoring, and planning tools:  UDL Exchange, Science Writer, and UDL Connect
