Esther, did you get your audio to work yet? You can try connecting your audio through your phone, if not.

I just wanted a refresher for UDL!
I just want to learn about UD.
learn more about UDL
Goal: To learn about UDL and how I can incorporate it into the planning for Fall semester.
My audio doesn’t work…So I’m typing my question
I'm going to re-evaluate my course offerings for fall online and I want to take the time to align for better student success overall.
Goal: learn enough to summarize to others what UDL is and why it is important
I’m very new to OER. Basics.
You are asking only for writing--rather that drawing it
But it doesn't allow other modalities
Yes, maybe even a video or a presentation slide
Students may know content- circulatory system- but may not know how to write
Allowing drawings, visuals
act it out physically
audio recording, video recording
Show or demonstrate how the circulatory system works
Michelle Abou Naoum
Using any format (audio, video, drawing, writing, …) demonstrate how…
That would be the type of answer I would give
Your job is to teach another person how the circulatory system works
If you wanted to teach someone how the circulatory system works, how would you do it?
My job is to create an environment in which the student can learn
Great answers everyone!
Michelle's answer seems best, as it doesn't exclude those who may want to write.
I’m also thinking of things like start the day with breathing or some sort of stress management.
I usually start my class with music, students look forward to it. Sometimes they contribute to a playlist.
I've been doing that in my "zoom" class meetings as well @Sheri
i'm struggling with the lab example
Sometimes you can find songs that go with a topic
Or videos other teachers have made
group work should be an option
Performance anxiety is a big factor in an interactive environment
Maybe having the student observe how two different lab partner sets do the experiment and report their lab outcomes
offer multiple ways to engage in the task?
make the stakes of participation very low?
Self-confidence with artistic side (drawing), motor skills (writing), social ability (team work)
I try to incorporate pair-sharing and small groups for students to get more time sharing their own voice
Model ways to solve the problem can work well in a lab setting as well.
However, it's important not to pin people to a role and reduce their opportunity for developing confidence and skills
Perhaps take a poll or survey in the working on norms in the beginning of all the options students want. I have not tried this yet but it was something that was introduced to me in an equity course I took. For example, as a class, we all shared our own favorite ways to share like video, writing, etc.
The best part of online teaching is the ability to put together safe places where students will speak up and it eliminates the anxiety and shyness.
You can use google earth pro to look at examples of physics, like for instance, the Duomo in Florence. They can fly over the dome, walk in side of it or walk around outside.
Using OER textbooks
Yes! Thanks Nicolas.
@ Monica, that is a great idea and an opportunity for them to start thinking about how they learn best
I teach Human Services so I’m stumped for an idea
For the final exam, students need to visit a museum with a classmate. They produce a SWAY as a docent walking me through the museum and art.
I love this idea, Amanda! I teach study skills and I have them write a letter to themselves to read at the beginning of next semester (and schedule it on their calendar to read it) to remind themselves of what worked well and what didn't and what strategies they want to use next semester.
Hello Sheri G.. I had to look up Human Services, my apologies. It appears to incorporate interdisciplinary skills and communication skills. I would consider the learning objectives and how students could draw on their strengths.
@Sheri. You are welcome. I learned a lot from faculty about creating safe spaces and inviting students to give input in their learning.
I think it would help with your own goal setting if you thought about what you would like to hear your students say in answer to this question
They could write a stage play or script for a public service announcement that is a written description of the graphic
Some of the "bigger" projects can also incorporate scaffolding of skills and assignments.
Good advice Nicholas
How are you incorporating specific growth mindset terminology into your curriculum?
Sable, you may get some ideas from the Tips for Fostering Expert Learners at http://castprofessionallearning.org/project/top-5-udl-tips-for-fostering-expert-learners/
I have those, thanks
I'm trying to incorporate the philosophy without turning the course into a growth mindset, UDL, and neuromyths course
This reminds me of a student going on an overseas program who ued a wheelchair, where the school said that there was no elevator. I asked if there was a classroom downstairs and they went oh.....

@Dave Thank you so much
Everyone is deciding whether or not to share their house affiliation :-D (just kidding)
One thing I do is have one "FLEX" assignment that allows students to decide on something they want to learn about and gain expertise on and how they are going to do this. I also require them to come to office hours (good practice) to work out their goals for this assignment
I had a career exploration assignment where they looked for and posted their ideal jobs
Thanks for sharing Sheryl!
I incorporate projects with self directed goals following a strict set of guides to build on
Those are great!
Maybe the past month
I use Supreme Court cases to teach critical thinking and composition. Instead of selecting all the cases myself, I could create a menu of them and let students choose according to their interests.
I had a treasure hunt on a site re: Victims rights and had them look up an area that represents their interest and then share with class
Thank you so much — glad I attended the workshop
How do you feel about the learning objectives for this session: 1. Identify the three principles of UDL2. Distinguish between UDL, accommodations, and accessibility3. Locate UDL professional development resources
I use current events for small group discussion to help build online research skills and collaboration
In powerpoint, you can set the presentation to show in a window rather than full screen
that's what I do
in google sheets you can exit full screen and run the show (and notes) in the browser
Great job with learning objectives - Yes!
Unfortunately, I was late. Will this be sent out as a recording?
Yes, I got what I expected and more.
Thank you Amanda and Nicholas!
Thanks so much!
Thank you so much!
THANKS Y'ALL SO MUCH!
