UDL Habit #4 - Provide Multiple Means of Engagement, Representation, and Action & Expression
By developing clear goals, predicting barriers to the goal, and embracing learner variability, we are ready for Habit #4 - designing learning opportunities that provide multiple pathways and/or options so that all learners can achieve the goal. The UDL Guidelines
are an essential tool that will help us identify options such as how to recruit and sustain student interest with the learning (Engagement
); how to help learners perceive and make sense of the learning (Representation
), and how to provide options so that learners can demonstrate their learning (Action & Expression
Consider exploring the UDL Interactive Guidelines
on the CAST website, to further your knowledge of how to provide multiple means of Engagement, Representation, and Action & Expression. If this tool is new to you, you may also want to read more about the Guidelines Structure
or watch this brief video by David Rose
on how to best interpret the UDL Guidelines.
If you’d like to comment on how the UDL guidelines could be used to provide options to your learners, consider responding via Twitter.
Be sure to check back next week for a tool that will help you apply all four UDL habits to the instructional design process.
