Intro to Universal Design for Learning: Engagement

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a framework that allows you to make meaningful, rigorous learning opportunities accessible to all students. In this course, you’ll dive into one of the key principles of UDL: “provide multiple means of engagement.” Engagement is the “why” of learning and represents students’ motivation to learn. You will explore what this principle really means, why you should use it, and how you can apply it to your instructional design. This course is designed for educators across all subject areas and grade levels.

In this course, you will:

  • Explain how Universal Design for Learning (UDL) can eliminate barriers for learners and create equitable learning outcomes.
  • Identify examples of the UDL principle of engagement in practice across grade levels and content areas.
