@johnmayo Can you start us off with a good definition of #UDL (Universal Design for Learning) ahead of tonight's hour long #edchatie discussion?
Rí O'Mhaire @riomhaireschool
Primary SET, Mayo. Could we get a deeper definition of UDL and perhaps an example from primary, secondary and third level so that we can get out heads around the concept? #edchatie

#edchatie UDL defined by the Centre for Excellence in Universal Design based in Ballsbridge define it as universaldesign.ie/What-is-Univer…
John Heffernan @johnmayo
#edchatie Our definition in #ACPS is We will offer alternative representations of information, multiple tools, and a variety of instructional strategies to provide access for all learners to acquire lifelong learning competencies.
John Heffernan @johnmayo
#edchatie basically UDL when designed in education process allows for multiple ways for achieving success
fboss @fboss
@johnmayo I like when they say "It is an orientation to any design process that starts with considering the needs of the user." This is a good approach to differentiation in learning #edchatie
John Heffernan @johnmayo
#edchatie UDL forms part of a larger structure in Albemarle where we have 7 Pathways to guide what we do www2.k12albemarle.org/dept/dart/edte…

#edchatie Leigh from Michigan (I work with higher ed & teacher educators) - we embed UDL into a larger "Learning Design Strategy" lds.msu.edu/practice/
John Heffernan @johnmayo
#edchatie one of the problems with differentiation with teachers is that they feel need to do multiple activities where a UDL informed activity will have built in from the beginning

@gravesle Welcome to tonight's #edchatie discussion on "Should we be incorporating Universal Design for Learning in student teaching/CPD education?" Great to chat with you again online @gravesle
John Heffernan @johnmayo
#edchatie I doubt UDL is on the radar on the teaching training colleges or PDST.
fboss @fboss
@johnmayo That's what I meant - it's a bit like the approach used in Design Thinking -> interaction-design.org/literature/art… It starts with the learner #edchatie
Liam Guilfoyle @LiamDGuilfoyle
Liam; background in Post-Primary Science, PhD candidate in Teacher Ed - I'm curious about UDL but not hugely opinionated on the subject. Tonight might help form my opinions! #edchatie
John Heffernan @johnmayo
@fboss #edchatie Design Thinking is spot on Fred. In my opinion, UDL will change the way I would design a scheme of work (if I ever have to do one again)

Tonight on #edchatie we're discussing #UDL "Should we be incorporating Universal Design for Learning in student teaching/CPD education?" Bring your thoughts and questions to the discussion #edchat
Liam Guilfoyle @LiamDGuilfoyle
@johnmayo Do! I watched the video you posted. I have definitely come across the concept before, or similar concepts. But happy to consume more to get a better picture! Thanks. #edchatie
