Universal Design for Learning: Meeting the needs of all students

What is UDL and how can we use it to design lessons that meet the needs of all of our students? Fellow educators shared plenty of suggestions.

>>>Updated November 2019<<<

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a framework that aides educators in designing lessons that meet the needs of diverse learners.

We want to reach ALL of our students in a way that works best for them.

But how do we actually go about doing it?

How do you learn what motivates, stimulates, or is purposeful to your learners? And what tools or strategies are available to help reduce the barriers and highlight strengths in order to allow all learners to access your content?

In a recent #DitchBook Twitter chat moderated by Mike Mohammad, we discussed Universal Design for Learning. The #DitchBook community shared their thoughts on the topic along with TONS of ways to utilize UDL to meet the needs of all of our students.

Check them out in the summary of this week’s chat below!
