How Can I Implement UDL in the Next 20 Minutes?

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) has been a giant step forward in education. Many teachers have boosted student performance by relying on its sound principles to customize the curriculum. Students who might have felt left behind or shut out are having a richer educational experience.

Yet some educators are intimidated by the supposed demands of the program. They believe that UDL takes a lot of work to set up, or they’re unsure of how to address the diverse needs of their students.

How Can I Implement UDL in the Next 20 Minutes? demystifies these misconceptions and provides a realistic blueprint that any educator can follow.


The program presenter uses his experience working on behalf of people with disabilities or from disadvantaged backgrounds to show how UDL can become part of almost any school efficiently and effectively.

The video quickly summarizes the neuroscience behind UDL and the proven advantages that you and your students will derive from it. You’ll discover how UDL benefits all students and gives extra support to vulnerable groups taking classes, including single parents, working students, and military learners away from home.

The presenter will explain three specific strategies that can be applied to your courses—each in less than 20 minutes!

Making these changes can actually give students who work on mobile devices more time for studying, leading to increased student retention, persistence, and satisfaction.
