This is session one of three for the workshop 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:
Do you clear ramps or shovel steps? Our answer to this question lies in how we recognize and address variability. Join Matt Bergman as he shares strategies for clearing ramps or proactively addressing high probability learning barriers with accessible design. Participants will also dig deeper into the UDL Guidelines to develop a toolbox of ready-to-implement low-tech and high-tech UDL resources and strategies. Special emphasis will be placed on applying the UDL principle “Multiple Means of Representation” and the UDL Progression Rubric. Participants will also have an opportunity to redesign a content-specific lesson, assignment, or assessment that they can immediately use with their students. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify high probability learning barriers and determine why UDL is needed to meet the needs of every student. 
  • Dig deeper into the The UDL Guidelines to develop a toolbox of ready-to-implement low-tech and high-tech resources and strategies that provide students with clear goals and flexible means.  
  • Discuss strategies for applying the UDL principle “Multiple Means of Representation” to present information to students in a way that they can understand, engage with, and learn from. 
  • Examine how the UDL Progression Rubric can be used as a road map to incorporate the principles of UDL into lessons as well as a tool to measure the progress of implementing these principles in the classroom. 
  • Redesign a content-specific lesson, assignment, or assessment that provides flexibility in the product or process.

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
