Maximizing Learning

Here are the slides from the Maximizing Learning workshop:


As you are planning your classes this fall remember that you need to “design to the edges[1]. The Universal Design for Learning (UDL) [2] helps frame our planning by suggesting we:

  1. recognize that our students are individuals, each of whom bring strengths and weaknesses to the classroom
  2. ensure our students know what and how they are supposed to learn
  3. plan an active class that will engage and motivate our learners
  4. ensure class materials and resources are accessible to all learners
  5. assess students according to what and how they learned
