UDL Series — Action and Expression: Executive Functions
Executive functions enable humans to counter impulsive, short-term responses to their immediate environment and instead set long-term goals, plan efficient strategies to achieve these goals, track their progress, and adjust strategies as necessary.
UDL series — Action and Expression: Expression and Communication
Providing flexibility for modalities of communication gives students the opportunity to demonstrate their strengths, while also focusing attention on areas they need to improve. Exercising all modes of communication helps students to be successful now and after Carleton.
UDL series — Action and Expression: Physical Action
Providing multiple means of action and expression for students to demonstrate their knowledge creates an equitable learning environment. Options for physical action include varying the method for response and navigation in the classroom and optimizing access to tools and assistive technologies.
UDL series — Engagement: Self Regulation
The ability to self-regulate is a critical aspect of human development. Provide options for students to gain skills in this area by promoting expectations and beliefs that optimize motivation, facilitating personal coping skills and strategies, and curating self-assessments and reflective practices.
UDL series — Engagement: Sustaining Effort & Persistence
To help students sustain effort and persistence, remind them of the learning goals and why they matter, offer challenging opportunities, foster a community of learners, and provide feedback.
UDL series — Engagement: Recruiting Interest
Providing multiple means of engagement in a course — by optimizing individual choice and autonomy, by optimizing relevance, value and authenticity, and by minimizing threats and distractions — is another fundamental principle of UDL. Implementing options for engagement can increase the inclusiveness of the classroom.
UDL series — Representation: Comprehension
Transforming accessible information into usable knowledge is not a passive process but an active one. Designing how information is presented can lead to increased comprehension.
UDL series — Representation: Languages and Symbols
Multiple means of representation includes vocabulary, symbols, syntax, and structure. Students might encounter difficulties when information is presented in only one form, and providing clarity of language and symbol can help.
UDL series — Representation: Perception
Providing the same information in multiple modalities (both text and images, for example) creates flexibility on how content is perceived and can reduce barriers to learning.
