#UDLchat: UDL in the Wild

May 1, 2019 | 6:00-6:30pm PT / 9:00-9:30pm ET (UTC-5)

Question Preview

Our brains are always learning, no matter where we are or what we're doing; learning is not limited to structured learning environments, such as digital or in-person classrooms. We work hard as educational professionals to implement UDL in these settings, but examples of UDL exist outside these environments as well. If the goal of UDL is expert learning, then part of becoming an expert learner is recognizing UDL out in the world as informal instances of implicit or explicit instruction.


We often say that once you start to internalize the UDL framework, you start to find UDL everywhere. Let's find UDL in the wild!


Questions:

  • Q1: Describe an example of multiple means of representation that you've encountered outside of a typical learning environment.
  • Q2: Describe an example of multiple means of action & expression that you've encountered outside of a typical learning environment.
  • Q3: Describe an example of multiple means of engagement that you've encountered outside of a typical learning environment.
  • Q4: Choose one of the examples shared (yours or someone else's) and describe how you'd like to incorporate it into your instructional design.

So what's this #UDLchat all about?
