Intro to Universal Design for Learning: Action & Expression

The Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principle of action & expression is a cornerstone of inclusive education. Action and expression represent the “how” of learning: the ways in which learners navigate an environment and show what they know. Join us as we unravel the mysteries of strategic networks in the brain and explore the myriad ways you can incorporate this powerful principle into your instructional design. This course is intended for educators in all subjects and grade levels.
