In this facilitated course, participants will explore the UDL Guidelines and take a deep dive into the implementation of UDL, focusing on creating innovative learning environments for teachers that can be scaled to improve the outcomes of all students within the district, developing PLC’s rooted in UDL, supporting the work in classrooms, and staying true to a vision of UDL.

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a framework that recognizes all learners are varied and provides flexibility in design to optimize learning outcomes. As instructional coaches, teacher leaders, and/or administrators, it is our job to support educators as they work towards fully implementing UDL into their practice. Instructional leaders and coaches play an important role in this work because we support, encourage, and motivate educators as they integrate UDL in their classrooms and schools. Participants in this course will explore the UDL Guidelines and take a deep dive into the implementation of UDL, focusing on creating innovative learning environments for teachers that can be scaled to improve the outcomes of all students within the district, developing PLC’s rooted in UDL, supporting the work in classrooms, and staying true to a vision of UDL.

As a result of completing this course, participants will:

  1. Establish a solid understanding of UDL through exploration, application, and discussion.
  2. Gain confidence in leading others in growing their UDL knowledge through lesson design, professional development opportunities, coaching, and other interactions with colleagues.
  3. Develop essential tools to build capacity for UDL implementation at the site or district level.

How the Course Works

  • Eight asynchronous online learning modules containing videos, resources, and weekly assignments and/or discussions.
  • Weekly synchronous 1 hour sessions with the course instructor and your fellow classmates.
  • Direct interaction and feedback from your instructor and the opportunity to build community with your classmates through course discussion boards.
  • Lots of options and choices - UDL is at the foundation of everything we do.
  • Participants will be expected to pass in work by the due date, but will also be given the opportunity to revise and improve upon their work (just as students in their class should be given the same respect using the UDL framework).
  • All assignments can be resubmitted for feedback and grading up until the last day of the course.
