Putting UDL into Action This section gives participants an opportunity to practice planning instruction using the UDL framework. It starts with a review of what UDL is compared to traditional practice and then addresses each of the following questions: 1. How can we proactively plan instruction using the Universal Design for Learning principles, guidelines, and accompanying checkpoints? 2. How can we create and evaluate learning environments that align with the Universal Design for Learning Framework? 3. How do we identify and strategically use materials, curricula, and technologies that align instruction with the Universal Design for Learning framework? 4. How do we use progress monitoring and data-based decision making to inform instruction and student learning in order to provide timely mastery-oriented feedback? 5. How do we strategically integrate evidence-based practices into Universal Design for Learning planning, teaching, and assessment?
A Deeper Dive into UDL Implementation This section provides one more opportunity for participants to clarify any remaining confusion about UDL, reconsider learner variability and learn additional ways to present information and have students demonstrate their learning. Part 4 addresses planning instruction and assessing the work of the teacher candidate and k-12 students using the principles and guidelines of UDL.
