Many educators have explored the fundamentals of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and then asked: “How do I use UDL in my planning?” In this webinar, Dr. Patti Ralabate walked through the process of applying UDL to effective lesson planning. Patti is the author of the practical guide “Your UDL Lesson Planner: The Step-by-Step Guide for Teaching All Learners,” and she presented six easy steps to get started with UDL in your planning:

  • Develop clear, flexible learning goals
  • Design lessons that address learner variability
  • Meaningfully assess learning
  • Infuse UDL strategies into traditional teaching methods
  • Enhance lessons with materials and media that add real value
  • Use self-reflection strategies to strengthen everyday practice

Through examples, models, and reflection questions, discover how to create engaging, customized lessons that address the variability of learners of all ages. Learn how to supercharge your lesson plans with one of today’s best teaching frameworks: Universal Design for Learning.
