Is there a place to identify what the expectations are and about how much time I need to set aside to earn this credential? Trying to decide when to begin. Thanks!

Good Q Ruby, I am wondering the same. Does it really take a year to earn the credential, especially if you have a firm knowledge base of UDL?

No sound? Am I missing something? Text-to-speech voice over is simple to accomplish and would help enormously. The NVDA screen reader is having trouble with the first reading assignment. Plus, when the assignment is completed, a screen appears that reads "BYE! You may now leave this page." But the only way to leave is to exit the course, which means I have to now reload and pick through to where I left off. For a course on UDL principles, it is a bit ironic that the module doesn't seem to be set up to accomodate all learners.

UDL is important to teachers and students at schools. To students, UDL provides multiple means of representations, which can promote students' understanding of lessons. students who can understand the knowledge and context at the lesson are more likely to master the skills and contents, and therefore they can achieve higher scores and succeed at schools. Meanwhile, UDL allows students to express themselves in multiple ways, which means that students can use the ways that they are interested to show their knowledge in classes and assessments. it is particularly important to students with disabilities to express themselves in flexible ways, because they may face barriers when they are required to use one way to participate in testing. Moreover, UDL stresses the engagement in students' learning, so that students are more likely to finish their learning. To teachers, using UDL to design a lesson is more likely to include all students at a class, because teachers use multiple ways to promote students' understanding, engagement, and participation, which can help teachers to design successful lessons. at the same time, using UDL can help teachers to reflect their students because UDL can be a checklist, when teachers design their lessons, and teachers can design flexible lessons if they can rethink their lessons in UDL principles.

Myth of Average

Building Mindsets for Learner Variability/Inclusive Practice

This session details how the Learner Variability and Special Education Initiative at Teach For America develops mindsets for incoming teachers as well as staff members and the promising results stemming from this approach.

About
Curious about building or deepening mindsets in teachers and school leaders that invest them in welcoming all learners and building inclusive classrooms and schools? This session details how the Learner Variability and Special Education Initiative at Teach For America develops mindsets for incoming teachers as well as staff members and the promising results stemming from this approach. The session explores the history of ableism and its intersection with racism and other forms of oppression, ramifications on students today, different models of disability, and how we consider our own identity when it comes to ability. The session concludes with an exploration of how the Initiative then connects Universal Design for Learning as a pedagogical framework for welcoming learner variability and incorporating inclusive practices in all classrooms and schools.

Learner Variability Navigator logo with tagline moving beyond the average design to reach each learner

Learner Variability Navigator

Digital Promise’s Learner Variability Navigator (LVN) is a free whole child-based web tool that presents evidence-based factors and strategies to meet learners where they are across varied contexts and needs. Building on emerging research on learner variability, we strive to support each learner, their parents, educators, and the ed-tech development community.

About

The science of the individual is clear that there is no average student. Teaching to the middle actually teaches no one. Learning sciences, instead, leads us to better understand the factors that matter in learning, a combination of academic, cognitive, social and emotional skills, and student background. At the Learner Variability Project (LVP) we translate this ever-growing research into easily accessible factors and strategies that can inform both product design and classroom practice. The research-based factors and strategies together comprise our Learner Models, which include preK through high school in reading, math, and literacy. These Models are free, open-source, and based on a whole-child framework. Teachers and edtech developers can:

 

  1. Independently walk through LVN to infuse their practice and product with research-driven learner factors and strategies designed to reach each learner. 

  2. Seek LVP-provided professional development and training opportunities. 

  3. Explore learner variability micro-credentials that build educators’ capacity for addressing different factors, like attention and self-regulation. 

 

LVP also provides access to free reports, case studies, videos, and webinars focused on learner variability and learning sciences research in numerous areas, including SEL, culturally responsive teaching, and adolescent literacy.

Anticipate Variability and Reduce Barriers

An overarching goal of UDL is to anticipate learner variability and reduce barriers in the design of learning experiences. This UDL Core Foundation resource was designed to help you better understand the importance of designing for learner variability and reduce barriers in the learning experiences.

No votes yet

About

There are two key ideas in the UDL Core Foundation - Level 2 Credential:

  1. There is variability in our learners that we can anticipate. Variability refers to the full range or spectrum of learners. It can be predictable and we can design to support it.

  2. Barriers are places in a learning experience where learners struggle in unproductive ways that are not necessary to achieve the intended learning goals or objectives. Barriers can be proactively reduced in the design of the goals, assessments, methods, and materials using the UDL Guidelines.

This UDL Core Foundation resource was designed to help you better understand the importance of designing for learner variability and reduce barriers in the learning experiences.

Thank you for providing this informative tool!

It may seem like I'm nitpicking, but it's for your good : )  I noticed a small grammar mistake on slide 8, towards the bottom.  The text reads, "but instead addresses the barrier by incorporating a flexible design options that support the intended goal."  Remove the "a" after "incorporating."
