FLO Friday: UDL for Intentional Design

*Note: This session has passed. Please view the recordings and resources below.

One of the objectives of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is to help you become more intentional as you plan the design, delivery, and assessment of learning. When environments are intentionally designed, all learners can engage in meaningful learning. In this FLO Friday workshop, you will learn more about the three principles of UDL and how to apply them in different contexts. You will identify techniques to include learner voice and learner choice in the courses/learnings you design. And hopefully you’ll feel inspired to experiment with UDL to reduce barriers and maximize learning opportunities for all learners.
