The principles of Universal Design for Learning provide educators with a framework to plan lessons to make instruction accessible to every student. In this course, we will work through six weeks of online activities. All of the activities are designed to further the team goal of experiencing free technology to help teachers plan lessons in a way that makes the content accessible to the widest possible audience. Throughout the course, participants will learn practical methodologies for representing content using multiple modalities, providing the means for students to demonstrate what they know using a variety of tools, and engaging learners using high-interest, authentic practices.

Learning Objectives -

1. Participants will become familiar with Universal Design for Learning as a framework for designing instruction.

2. Participants will become familiar with a number of web tools and their varied uses as methods for providing teachers multiple ways to represent content, providing students with multiple ways to express what they know, and providing students with engaging (high-interest and authentic) learning experiences.

3. Participants will develop an understanding of how to create a lesson using the Universal Design for Learning framework.
