Expert Learners

January 16, 2019 | 6:00-6:30pm PT / 9:00-9:30pm ET (UTC-5)

Question Preview

We know that the ultimate goal of the UDL framework is expert learning. But what does that actually mean? How do we define the qualities of expert learners for ourselves and for our learners? How do we ensure that we emphasize the process of becoming expert learners rather than present it as a destination with an endpoint?


  • Q1: What does it mean to be purposeful and motivated in your learning?
  • Q2: What does it mean to be resourceful and knowledgeable in your learning?
  • Q3: What does it mean to be strategic and goal-directed in your learning?
  • Q4: How do you share with your students how you are an expert learner?
