Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is not just a framework for curriculum design. It is a belief that all students are capable of learning and that instructional methods, when implemented intentionally, can help all students succeed. Join Savanna Flakes, a CAST certified Universal Design for Learning Facilitator in a full-day workshop exploring UDL in action. The day will share evidenced-based instructional strategies and technology tools and resources for the three principles of UDL.
Learning is most effective when it is multimodal - when material is presented in multiple forms. Students benefit from having multiple means of accessing and interacting with material and demonstrating their knowledge through evaluation. Gain tons of strategies to increase the level of success for every one of your diverse learners by providing choice and flexibility in the ways you present information using multiple formats and media.
Action and Expression
There is not just one means of action and expression that will be optimal for all learners; providing options for action and expression can greatly improve learning in your class. Learn a variety of ways to provide multiple and flexible means of expression and support students with alternative opportunities to demonstrate what they have learned.
Gather a variety of instructional strategies to increase the level of success for every student by engaging and motivating them through ensuring high levels of student participation and active engagement with the concepts by reducing teacher talk; differentiating the demands of the lesson and available resources to optimize challenge; and investing students in their progress by making them aware of it with visuals and organizers (charts, graphs, etc.).
Note: This UDL session can be customized for shorter or longer periods of time.
