Universal Design for Learning 2: UDL and the Whole Classroom
UDL 1 (UDL in the Everyday Classroom) introduced the purpose, principles and guidelines of Universal Design for Learning and guided participants to implement UDL by adapting their existing teaching and by developing a model lesson plan that addressed all three principles. This course goes beyond that piecemeal approach to consider how UDL can be implemented in an entire classroom over the course of an entire semester or year, in unit plans and curricula, with support from instructional and professional standards, and in concert with the physical learning environment.
