This past module has provided me a detailed introduction into the Principles and Guidelines of the Universal Design for Learning. Having the opportunity to review different websites and resources that follow principles and guidelines of UDL. While posting on the blog it allowed me to share my opinions and viewpoints with others that may or may not be aware of what resources are available. Using the blog in a class is useful to me as a professional because I can see what information others have found and how their viewpoint differs from mine. Also since there is so much information out there that is available and it is near impossible to look at everything there is an research everything. Having the opportunity to see what others have found and how they could use the same information in their own classroom.
Before completing this module, I heard of UDL but never understood the principles of it. Now reviewing the websites and resources from the module I have a clearer understanding of what UDL is and how it can be used in instructional planning and direct instruction. I have now found a way to amplify my lessons and increase student engagement, and student understanding.
