Using Universal Design for Learning to Transform Teaching Activities
Even the best planned class or professional development activity can fall flat if the diversity of the participants has not been taken into account. ‘Fixing’ a prepared teaching activity when faced with learner diversity is time consuming and complex. Universal Design for Learning equips educators with proactive ways to design learning experiences that are accessible to all from the get go. This 2-day workshop offers an entry level exploration of UDL and a detailed understanding of why this model is appealing to educators as they address learner diversity, how its principles operate to support educators in the design of the learning experience, and how to plan an autonomous journey into the wealth of resources available.
