Designing a UDL Lesson Plan with Katie Novak (1.5 hours) REGISTER HERE
April 24th from 4:00 to 5:30 PM

As educators, we want to encourage our students to make choices, take risks, and learn from their mistakes. To get started with implementing UDL, we must model this practice and understand that every trial won’t be a success. In this session, we will unpack lesson plans, dive into universally designed learning strategies, and discuss tools and scaffolds that can support you on your UDL implementation journey.

  • Understand how a UDL lesson plan is organized and what components should be included
  • Demonstrate how to unpack and “UDLify” a lesson plan
  • Explore how to identify barriers in lesson design and instruction and how to provide standards-aligned options and choices to help learners overcome barriers
