Online via WebEx

This workshop will introduce participants to the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework as a tool to design instruction and curricula that support variation in learners’ needs, abilities and interests. The UDL guidelines emphasize providing supports and options for how students receive information (representation), demonstrate their understanding (action and expression), and engage with the content (engagement). Attendees will have the opportunity to: 1) reflect on their role in designing instruction that supports learner variability; 2) practice applying the UDL guidelines to identify barriers in the learning environment and to design options and supports in sample written curricula and instructional scenarios; and 3) reflect on their own written curricula and/or classroom practices and design UDL-aligned strategies to implement. • Objectives: Participants will be able to: o Describe the three guidelines of the Universal Design for Learning framework and identify resources to look up the sub-principles and checkpoints. o Identify opportunities within their current roles to design instruction that supports learner variability. o Use the UDL guidelines to design options and supports for instructional barriers. o Identify UDL strategies that can be used to develop solutions within their own written curricula and/or classroom practices Register - https://fins.uconn.edu/secure_inst/workshops/workshop_view.php?ser=2004
