Equitable Access: Adapting Universal Design for Learning (UDL) Principles for Distance Learning (In partnership with The Learning Accelerator)
November 4, 2020, 1:00 - 2:00 PM ET
At the heart of UDL lies the fundamental belief that ALL students should have the opportunity to develop as knowledgeable, resourceful, strategic, and motivated learners. But how do you adapt this belief to remote/distance learning?
This webinar will provide an overview of the core tenets of UDL and how they might inform decisions about curriculum, technology, and the types of learning opportunities made available to students. When used as a framework for evaluating content, tools, and experiences, UDL can help to ensure equitable access to learning for ALL students.
