#UDLchat "Making Choices"

How Can We Help Learners with the Skill of Choice Making?

Topic Preview

A powerful component of the UDL framework is choice! Educators often begin their UDL journey by giving learners choice. Making choices is a skill that learners need to learn so that they are successful with the choices they make. Let's dig into the concept of choice and how we can support learners as they develop the skill of making choices.
