Please tell us a little bit about yourself
Dear fellow educators: My name is Yvonne Domings. In addition to being a researcher and instructional designer at CAST, I am currently part of the Professional Learning Team. CAST is always interested in is stimulating discussion among educators around UDL practices, so thank you for participating in a very interesting discussion about the UDL guidelines on this blog.
We are interested in learning how you found (and decided to comment on) this blog. Please feel free to post a comment letting us know:
- Was this blog something you, as an educator, came upon in your research on UDL as a framework for improving your instructional practice?
- Were you directed to come and comment as part of an assignment for a course or professional development workshop?
For more interesting discussions about UDL, check out UDL Connect, a community on the National Center for UDL where people are talking about a variety of topics about UDL.
Thank you in advance for your feedback on this.
You’ll notice that we’ve intentionally labeled these guidelines as Version 1.0 with the hope that you will contribute suggestions and we will be able to revise and vastly improve the guidelines in future “editions.”
We’ve set up the blog so you can comment on each of the guidelines separately but perhaps you have comments to share on the guidelines as a whole. Here is a place for you to do that.
Some questions to provoke your thinking and that we would very much like to hear from you about…
Which of the guidelines are relatively easy to apply to your lesson planning, instructional materials, or teaching practices? Which ones do you find particularly challenging to apply? For the ones that are difficult to apply, what would help you?
Are any of the guidelines more important to you than the others? Why?
Are there web-based curricular materials or lessons you feel are good examples of the application of the 3 UDL principles? Which ones?
Do you have examples to add to any of our guidelines?
Have you shared the guidelines with others? If so, in what context? What was the reaction?
We look forward to hearing from you!
