Discover the Learner using the UDL Lens

When each learner can understand and advocate for how they learn, barriers to learning can be removed and engagement and motivation can result. But where do you begin? Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and personalized learning can be the perfect match to have every learner realize agency and take ownership to learning. In this webinar, participants will be introduced to the UDL Lens of Access, Engage and Express to understand the value of knowing learners’ strengths, challenges and aspirations using a Learner Profile that serves as a foundation for acquiring the lifelong skills of agency and self-advocacy.
