In order to bridge the gap between theory and practice, a collegial collaboration of general and special education faculty created an intentional continuation of a foundations course, Introduction to Special Education. By infusing Universal Design for Learning (UDL) content and skills throughout a field-based elementary social studies methods course, students put the theory of UDL to practice in small group teaching opportunities. In this session, instructional methods and supports will be shared as a means to demonstrate how students grew in their understanding of UDL and using the concepts and strategies in their small group lesson plans and generation of instructional materials. Results of the students' self-reflection of UDL knowledge across the semester will also be shared.
