#UDLchat "Experience UDL!"

"But What Does UDL Look Like???"

Topic Preview

When educators begin their UDL learning journeys, they often want to know what UDL “looks like.” But to leverage the power of the UDL framework, it takes more than that. One must understand the core beliefs that are the foundation of the framework, the thinking that goes into intentional planning, and experience the interactions within the learning environment. As we design instruction valuing learner variability, minimizing barriers, and creating flexibility there are “sound-bites” as well as intentional “moves” that showcase the framework in action. Let’s experience UDL!

Here are our questions for November 7, 2018:

Q1: We are with an educator as she intentionally plans instruction and the learning environment through the UDL lens. What might the educator be saying/thinking/wondering about? #UDLchat

Q2: We have entered a learning environment that was designed using the UDL framework. What might the educators and learners be saying? #UDLchat

Q3: We are taking pictures of a learning environment and learning activities that have been designed using the UDL framework. What might our picture album contain? #UDLchat

Q4: What questions would you ask to help someone move further along in their UDL learning journey? #UDLchat
