UDL: Representation – Apply Your Skills

As an educator, you’ve witnessed first-hand how drastically students can differ in terms of how they best learn. In this course, you will practice applying the representation principle from the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework to make your lessons more accessible to all learners. To demonstrate your proficiency with this principle, you will revise one of your existing activities, assessments, or lesson plans to provide at least one more option for representation. This course is intended for educators in all subjects and grade levels.

In this course, you will:

  • Choose one of your lesson plans, sessions, or activities that would benefit from more options for representation.
  • Evaluate how your existing lesson plan, session, or activity currently gives learners options for representation within UDL’s guidelines and checkpoints.
  • Add at least one more option for representation to your existing lesson, session, or activity using UDL’s guidelines and checkpoints.
  • Give a rationale for the option(s) you added to your existing lesson, session, or activity.
