Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

As UDL now is incorporated into law to support the needs of all learners, it is essential for teacher candidates to understand how to apply UDL in the classroom. This study presents findings of a group of 24 preservice teachers who learned to incorporate the UDL guidelines and apply them with the culturally responsive pedagogy in a multicultural education course. Qualitative analysis indicates that the case study created avenues which enhanced preservice teachers’ educational experience and their ability to apply UDL concepts and tie them to social justice and culturally responsive pedagogy. Practical examples of how to extend the finding to practice will be provided including Concept maps, suggestions for lessons, and other on-line resources.
