Universal Design for Learning (UDL): Overview

Many students do not want to self-identify as disabled. If you design your course from the start with learning differentiation in mind, everyone does better, and special accommodation needs can disappear

What is Universal Design for Learning?

DISCUSS your [project] so you can discuss your [project]

D  Define - what you want your students to take away from your lesson.

I  Investigate - reusable open access resources already made. (Ask a Librarian!)

S  Set goals - start with the end in mind.

C  Chunk - break the topic down into chunks.

U  UDL- use different ways to see, hear, and experience or practice concept

S  Scaffold: Structure lesson logically, supply agenda or outline.

S  Student reflection – What use is the lesson?  (This is where the learning happens.)

Add variety with different formats: articles, books, videos, films, and multimedia

Continuous Improvement

Websites are like libraries, they are living organisms that change to meet the needs of the users.  They are never finished or complete, but always striving.  The "ideal" is a moving target!
