Introduction to Universal Design for Learning
UDL involves collaborative exploration among a team of learners committed to a common goal. This learning opportunity is designed to teach educators about the core concepts and foundations of UDL, practical applications of UDL to lesson design, and how to support flexible, inclusive instruction. We ask that teacher/administrative teams join this learning opportunity together.
- Design using the UDL design process
- Understand the structure of the UDL Guidelines
- Identify UDL in practice
- Set goals for your learning and apply UDL to your practice to remove barriers
- Identify expert learning and the connection between the design and learner outcomes

UDL Learning Community
Universal Design for Learning creates a culture of expert partners, which in turn creates a community of practitioners. MCIU is committed to provide a variety of offerings that remove barriers and provide multiple entry points for our participants to become knowledgeable, motivated, and goal-directed expert learners to create equitable classrooms that support all learners. We invite participants to be a part of a cycle to deepen understanding about Universal Design for Learning, apply practice, and gain feedback from a professional community of learners. This community will provide the opportunity to engage and be supported in the implementation of Universal Design for Learning practices with colleagues from around the county.
Components of the exploration community will include: virtual experiences with MCIU and Cabrini University staff and opportunities for classroom or school consults.
