Creating UDL Classroom Environments that Optimize Learning for All Students

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and differentiated instruction recognize that students learn differently and have different innate strengths and weaknesses. Learning is optimized when teachers offer flexibility in how students access information, engage with it, and demonstrate what they know.

Therefore, by "increas[ing] our understanding of who we teach and what we teach, we are likely to be much more flexible about how we teach.” —Tomlinson and Strickland, Differentiation in Practice, 2005

In this session we will discuss how differentiated instruction is intrinsically linked to Universal Design for Learning and how it can be understood within that framework. Participants will walk out with some contextualizing theory and a good number of high- and low-tech strategies that you will be able to use in your classrooms right away.

Appropriate for all grade levels
