Universal Design for Learning: Back to the Basics – Session 3 Strategic Networks
In this 3-part series we will take a brief look at Universal Design for Learning framework and then spend quality time focused on each of the 3 principles. Each session will focus on a different network in the UDL framework. We will explore the research supporting the specific network and how students benefit when teachers predict and plan for common barriers. Join us for all 3 sessions, or choose the one that best meets your needs.
