1 Creating Curricular Opportunities in the Digital Age Universal Design for Learning


3 Our goals for today:


5 Universal design for learning is a scientifically valid framework for guiding educational practice that ( a) provides flexibility in the ways information is presented, in the ways students respond or demonstrate knowledge and skills, and in the ways students are engaged; and (b) reduces barriers in instruction, provides appropriate accommodations, supports, and challenges, and maintains high achievement expectations for all students, including students with disabilities and students who are limited English proficient. Higher Education Opportunity Act UDL: The Definition What is UDL? What is UDL?

6 UDL provides a blueprint for creating instructional goals, methods, materials, and assessments that work for everyone--not a single, one-size-fits-all solution but rather flexible approaches that can be customized and adjusted for individual needs a set of principles for curriculum development that give all individuals equal opportunities to learn. UDL: The Framework

11 Learner Variability

12 It’s all variable! Learner Variability Learner Variability

13 What does this mean? Curriculum can work harder!

14 A quick variability example...

16 And another why…


18 The UDL Framework

19 The UDL Guidelines

20 BIG IDEA: UDL Guidelines UDL Guidelines

21 Three Core Principles

22 The following slides show tools we will use to better understand these guidelines throughout the semester. Don’t stress – you don’t need to learn any of them this week. This is just a quick introduction.

23 Low-tech, mid-tech, high-tech

33 Final thoughts! FUTURE DIRECTIONS

34 “Start with the goal and the content. What do you want to teach?” - David Rose, CAST UDL is not an all or nothing proposition

35 Did we meet our goals?

36 “Ultimately, what will separate new curricula from old is that they will reflect a new ecology for learning. That new ecology will put students at the center of the learning environment. And all students will not only learn, each in their own way; they also will teach. Every curriculum will not only teach, it will learn. In so doing, we will create an optimal ecology for learning, one in which the paths to learning are rich and diverse enough for all our students.” -Rose and Gravel, 2012
