Universal Design for Learning (UDL) provides the opportunity for all students to access, participate in, and progress in the general-education curriculum by reducing barriers to instruction. Join Dr. Hillary Goldthwaite-Fowles as she explains and explores the benefits of UDL, specifically as it relates to reading. She will discuss how UDL offers options for how information is presented, how students demonstrate their knowledge and skills, and how students are engaged in learning to read. Hillary will address phonemic awareness, decoding, and ways to instill a love of reading through the lens of Universal Design for Learning.

I have never heard of UDL before, so this was new for me. The framework makes sense by having the forethought in planning to ensure all students have access by reducing any barriers to instruction.
