My Favorite UDL Sites #UDL_Hgse

I am privileged to have been invited to serve as a facilitator at Harvard University's Universal Design for Learning (UDL) Institute. My posts this week will focus on the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework.

What is UDL?


It can be frustrating to think about ALL of the challenges and barriers that exist in any classroom, lesson, or school. Then there is the fact that we all learn differently. UDL is a framework for looking at high-probability barriers that exist in a lesson or curriculum and provides scaffolds, supports, and instructional techniques to help all students learn.

Even Though We are Different - We are the Same

Even though we are different, there are three predictable differences that we (and students) all have. Students NEED:

  • Options for how information is represented
  • Options to show what we know 
  • Options to engage differently
