Designing for English Learners: The UDL Approach

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

How can we use UDL to design for the learner variability of English language learners (ELs)? Using a problem-based approach (e.g., the use of scenarios, protocols, and/or posed questions) embedded with time for self-reflection, participants will identify steps that will enhance their learning environments and lessons. By the end of the session, participants will (1) identify characteristics of linguistic variability associated with English language learning, and (2) develop at least three culturally responsive UDL-designed strategies to engage learners, represent information, and offer opportunities for action & expression.

Submit an evaluation for this session.
