Instructional Strategies to Address the Diverse Needs of All Students

Description

Concept by Marco Fenici

Educators in today’s schools support students with diverse learning needs. It can be challenging to design learning opportunities that meet the needs of such a wide variety of learners.

The Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework aims to ensure all students have full access to educational resources, regardless of their needs and abilities. In terms of instructional design, Differentiation is a strategy that addresses each student’s learning profile, readiness, and interests.

The course is for teachers who seek to learn more about the approach of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and the strategy of Differentiation in order to design an accessible educational framework that addresses the diverse needs of all students (e.g. students with special needs, migrants) and ensures their educational and social inclusion.
