Universal Design for Learning: Improving Instruction through Student-Centered Learning Practices

Facilitator: Joy Fredrickson

Develop the knowledge, skills, and capacity to improve and optimize teaching and learning for all through Universal Design for Learning! During this 3-day workshop, participants will experience a framework for designing inclusive education experiences and environments. The workshop will equip educators in teaching to diversity and identity as well as identifying and removing barriers to increase student access to learning. Participants will gain practical strategies to address learner variability and provide flexibility in the ways learners access material, engage with it, and show what they know through purposeful, proactive design of goals, assessments, methods, and materials.

Participants will: -Understand the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework and guidelines to personalize learning and ensure that each student has access and opportunity to develop skills and achieve at high levels -Cultivate a UDL mindset to transform practices -Explore practical strategies and student-centered learning practices to address learner variability in how they are engaged in learning and motivated, perceive and comprehend information presented, navigate learning environments, and express what they know/can do -Engage in lesson design to develop and practice methods for utilizing the UDL framework in the design of classroom environments and instruction.
