Within the UDL Principle of Engagement, educators should provide options for Self-regulation to motivate learners. One option to do this is to develop self-assessment and reflection activities. In order to develop better capacity for self-regulation, learners should learn to monitor their emotions and reactivity carefully and accurately.

About

The implementation of UDL in higher education provides students in all areas of study engaging, accessible, and flexible learning. This breaks the mold of how higher education has traditionally looked. Moreover, teacher preparation programs have the additional responsibility to equip their graduates with the appropriate knowledge and practices to go into the profession and provide accessible and engaging instruction for all students in K-12. This session will share the vision of one college in threading UDL throughout the entire teacher preparation program. Explicitly teaching and modeling of the UDL principles, guidelines, and checkpoints for conceptual understanding to develop skill acquisition. Additionally, providing multiple opportunities for students to apply the knowledge when they are conducting field work in local schools. Through this process, we pass on the torch of UDL practices used in college classes to K-12 classrooms.

“Affect represents a crucial element to learning, and learners differ markedly in the ways in which they can be engaged or motivated to learn. There are a variety of sources that can influence individual variations in affect including neurology, culture, personal relevance, subjectivity, and background knowledge, along with a variety of other factors.”

No votes yet

About
This breakout session creates a single cross-disciplinary lesson with a focus on inclusion. The lesson is designed to integrate all the traditional disciplines (math, English, history, science, art, etc…) by grounding learning in a real-world context. We begin with a discussion of what cross-disciplinary learning looks like in the elementary classroom. Next, brainstorm ideas for the lesson and begin designing it, with careful consideration of the UDL guidelines. By the end of the session, we have a vibrant, engaging lesson that encourages students to see school learning and real-world learning as one in the same.
