In this new edition of the popular book Dive Into UDL, learn how Universal Design for Learning (UDL) supports the creation of learning environments that ensure all learners feel valued, respected and understood. UDL is a framework for designing instruction that meets the needs of every learner. This book is meant to support your professional learning, giving you options and choice in how you build your knowledge. You can wade in, take a shallow swim or dive into UDL as you develop your instructional practice and create a more inclusive learning environment that plans for variability, celebrates diversity and offers flexibility in how students learn and grow. In the process, you'll learn how to foster high achievement for all students, including those with disabilities or limited English proficiency. In this updated edition, readers will learn how to incorporate accessible learning materials and technologies into their instructional design to ensure choice for learners and help them develop into independent, motivated expert learners. This edition: Explores how UDL is key to creating an inclusive learning environment that is equitable, culturally relevant, safe and welcoming. Expands the learning to include virtual classrooms, and emphasizes how UDL is key to ensuring rich, engaging and purposeful online learning. Examines the application of UDL principles to multiple grade levels and subject areas in both in-person and online environments. Dives deeper into the authors' UDL Planning Guide guide at a variety of UDL levels of understanding (Wade in, Shallow Swim, Deep Dive). Features ideas and examples (on the companion website) from educators around the world to illustrate multiple means of engagement, representation, and action and expression. Along the way, the authors draw connections to the ISTE Standards (Educators and Students sections), helping teachers strategically use technology to not only support the three principles of UDL but support the development of independent, self-regulatory empowered learners. Audience: K-12 teachers, coaches and administrators; professors in pre-service programs
