In this session, participants will dig into Universal Design for Learning (UDL): what it is, why it matters, and how it manifests in the Dartmouth classroom. Through hands-on exploration and practical application of UDL’s three guidelines–providing students multiple means of engagement, representation, and expression–participants will gain insight into how these principles can help instructors reach and teach all students effectively.
The national organization CAST defines UDL as "an educational approach based on the learning sciences with three primary principles—multiple means of student engagement, multiple means of representation of information, and multiple means of student action and expression." The principles of UDL can help all educators–whether in the classroom or beyond–better meet the needs of all students, including neurodiverse students, first-generation college students, international students, English language learners, and students of other marginalized identities.
