  • 1. Universal Design for Learning (UDL)
    • By Sherry Rivers
    • EDLP 735
  • 2. What is UDL? Universal Design for Learning is based on the premise that a “curriculum should include alternatives to make it accessible and appropriate for individuals with different backgrounds, learning styles, abilities, and disabilities in widely varied learning contexts.” It provides a framework that allows teachers to differentiate instruction.
  • 3. Brain-Based Research
  • 4. Principles of UDL
    • Allow teachers to minimize barriers and maximize learning through flexibility:
    • To support recognition learning : provide multiple, flexible methods of presentation
    • To support strategic learning : provide multiple, flexible methods of expression and apprenticeship
    • To support affective learning : provide multiple, flexible options for engagement
  • 5. UDL Framework
    • Allows teachers to:
    • Set Clear Goals
    • Support Every Student’s Learning
    • Accurately Assess Student Progress
  • 6. Instructional Media
    • Traditional Media
      • Text
      • Video
      • Audio
    • Digital Media
      • Combines and transforms traditional media to accommodate strengths and weaknesses of every type of learner
  • 7. Advantages of Digital Media
    • Versatile
    • Transformable
    • Can be Marked
    • Can be Networked
  • 8. Why UDL?
    • “ UDL does more than insist on flexibility; it provides teachers with the information and resources they need to achieve it.”
