This is session two of three for the series titled Transforming Learning Through Universal Design for Learning (UDL)

NOTE: While we recommend that you attend all sessions of the workshop series to meet the learning objectives, each workshop can be attended as a standalone. Full members will also have access to view the recordings on-demand and earn up to three continuing education credits

Workshop Description:
How do you plan a lesson using UDL? The following session will provide participants with several different tools for proactively planning lessons to meet the needs of all learners. Join Matt Bergman as he shares the importance of developing clear goals and providing flexible means, including examples of lesson makeovers designed to infuse flexibility in the product or process. Participants will also investigate strategies for developing flexible and construct-relevant assessments. Special emphasis will be placed on the UDL principle “Multiple Means of Action and Expression.”

Learning Objectives:
  • Discuss strategies for applying the UDL principle “Means of Action and Expression” to offer learners diverse ways to express their understanding and skill development resulting from their content experiences.

  • Explore ideas for developing flexible and construct-relevant assessments to motivate students and engage them in the learning process by providing voice and choice in their learning.

  • Special Technology Instructions: Participants will need access to an internet device and a non-school, personal Google account. SimpleK12’s Google Classroom will be utilized for the interactive and hands-on components of this workshop.

    Assessment: Participants will complete an exit ticket to demonstrate their understanding of the workshop objectives and reflect on their learning.

    "Who or what is disabled?" in any type of discussion is an extremely important variable in the field of learning. Matt is on the look-out for students who are prime candidates for extra help, counseling, even sprawling outward to include cartoons for the students. It is an effective and broad tool to encourage students to participate and learn, no matter the subject material or difficulty of same.

    This educator is a very experienced teacher who has a great sense of humor and an eagerness to be all-inclusive regarding UDL with students, past and present. He includes discussions which involve his family, members of different communities (in that he moved with his dad's business change) and this type of inclusion obviously meant positivity to his students. They liked him! No surprise.
