Do you want to maximize your students’ learning experiences? With the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework, you can learn to set clear goals, anticipate barriers and design lessons to reduce those barriers for all. This course will help you to use cognitive neuroscience as a foundation for designing instruction to best meet the needs of your diverse learners. Upon completion, you will feel confident, prepared and equipped to construct meaningful learning experiences for all! Participants will be able to:
- Use learner variability as a way to understand and address individual students’ learning needs;
- Apply principles of universal design to reduce barriers for students in the school environment, assessments, methods and materials; and
- Create student-centered lesson plans and learning experiences using the Universal Design Framework and Guidelines.
Participants may earn 45 PLU’s.
