Universal Design of Learning (UDL)

Introduction
  • State and federal standards, together with a
    shift in how literacy is defined. They are asking
    teachers not only to cover large amounts of
    material, but also to instill a deep
    understanding of the material.
  • The central premise of UDL is that curriculum
    should include alternatives to make it accessible
    to all types of people.
  • Universal in universal design reflects an
    awareness of the unique nature of each learner as
    well as the need to accommodate the differences,
    creating a learning experience that fit the
    learner and increase their ability to progress.

Origins of UDL
  • - Universal Design was formulated by Ron Mace
    at North Carolina State University.
  • - Legislation mandating universal access led to
    the extension of ramps, elevators, talking signs,
    and other access devices.
  • - Universal design challenges an architect to
    innovate, often-improving aesthetics and
    functionality.
  • - Universal design for learning extends
    universal design in 2 key ways
  • 1. it applies the idea of built-in flexibility
    to the educational curriculum.
  • 2. it pushes universal design one step further
    by supporting not only improved access to
    information within classrooms, but also access to
    learning.
  • Non-educators often make the mistake of equating
    access to information with access to learning.
  • As educators, our aim is not simply to make
    information accessible to students, but to make
    learning accessible.
  • Knowing the instructional goal is essential for
    determining when to provide support and when to
    provide resistance and challenge.

Overview
  • Provide students with a wide variety of options
    reduce barriers and enhance opportunity for every
    student.
  • Principle I- provide multiple representations of
    the same information.
  • Provide the same information in a variety of
    forms (chart doesnt help a blind student), help
    kids who have trouble interpreting as well (use
    verbal review).
  • Two representations provide a richer learning
    environment.

UDL Appreciation Rethinking Practice
  • Rethink materials of curriculum to enhance by
    making them more flexible to reach diverse
    learners.
  • Rethink instructional practices.
  • Clearly set goal and do it yourself ways to reach
    them for every assignment.
  • Support and challenge learners.
  • Learning is multi-facted.
  • All 3 brain networks involved in learning
  • Recognition
  • Strategic
  • Affective networks

6
UDL Appreciation Rethinking Practice
  • Recognize essential cues and patterns master
    skillful strategies for action engage with
    learning.
  • Successful learning environment minimizes
    barriers, which requires highly flexible teaching
    strategies and materials.
  • UDL framework includes 3 over arching operative
    principles.
  • Approaches for supporting learners in
    recognition, strategy, or affect.

7
Principles
  • Principle 1 to support recognition learning,
    provide multiple, flexible methods of
    presentation.
  • Principle 2 to support strategic learning,
    provide multiple flexible methods of expression
    and apprenticeship.
  • Principle 3 to support affective learning,
    provide multiple, flexible options for
    engagement.
  • Goals also help to focus assessment.

8
Set Clear Goals
  • Use supports and scaffolds so all students can
    succeed.
  • Some will need support, some will need more
    challenges.
  • Set a broad goal with different specifications
    for each student.

9
Individualizing Instruction Assessing Progress
  • Provide instruction that helps each student
    achieve.
  • Diverse digital tools, some have UDL flexibility
    built-in.
  • Use strategies from UDLs 3 principles to make
    educated choices regarding available
    alternatives.
  • Effective and ongoing assessment adjust
    instruction and evaluate the effectiveness of
    instructional methods and materials used.
  • Check to see these are supporting student
    progress.
  • Assign assignments with goals, materials, and
    methods.
