Course Description:

UDL, or universal design for learning, is a framework for teaching geared toward accommodating the needs and abilities of all learners. Using UDL, the learning goals are the same for all students while the teacher provides different ways for these goals to be achieved.  UDL is not the same as differentiated instruction, as UDL proactively aims to provide options that makes the lesson accessible to all learners, differentiated instruction is a reactive process in which adjustments are made based on the individual’s needs.  UDL is meant to remove the barriers to learning and encourage students to self-differentiate by choosing the best path for themselves.  We will explore

• What Universal Design for Learning is and how it can engage all students
• How UDL develops expert learners
• Using BrainPOP as a tool for UDL
• Learner variability and the Myth of Average
• The multiple means of representation, engagement, and action and expression
