Understanding by Design Framework: An Intro
The Understanding by Design (UbD) framework is a tool that you can use to ensure that learning activities and assessments are aligned with key learning outcomes. Sometimes referred to as backwards design, UbD can help you be more purposeful in your day-to-day and long-term planning. Join Dr. Jayme Linton as she provides an overview of the Understanding by Design framework and the benefits of using it as you plan your lessons. Discover how it can help you with curricular planning and alignment to focus instructional activities and promote better understanding.
