UDL: A framework for good teaching, a model for student success
Workshop for Integrated Services, Poudre School District
Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a three-part model for good teaching, designed to promote inclusive classroom instruction and accessible course materials. The case for UDL begins by acknowledging the diversity found in today's classrooms, including students of different language backgrounds and learning styles. Disabilities, both apparent and non-apparent, are another facet of student diversity. The goal of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is to make learning, and the materials of instruction, accessible to all students. This session provides an introduction to UDL, including specific examples of its application in the classroom in terms of both teaching and technology.
This workshop will review the key concepts of UDL and their application to high school students, including students with and without IEPs. The role of assistive technology (AT) will also be discussed, along with its many benefits to a wide range of students.
