PD on the Go: What is Universal Design for Learning?

Join us every Friday to see one of our favorite short videos to grow and enhance your practice.

Personalized instruction encourages students to drive their understanding by choosing a method of engagement from a menu of options. Hear Katie Novak, Ed.D., explain how UDL supports that approach while streamlining the process for teachers.

What do you think?

  • How can you use UDL principles to personalize learning for all students?
  • How can UDL support students with disabilities better understand and engage with material?
  • How are you already using UDL principles in your classroom?

Take this from theory to practice

UDL offers students a variety of options to enhance and personalize learning, much like going to a buffet and choosing which food to eat, based on your dietary preferences, allergies, likes and dislikes. Use the PowerUp What Works strategy guides and resources to support your UDL instruction: Modeling, Semantic Mapping, and Applying Mathematics Skills for Success in Science.

See you here next week.
