We did it! Year 2 of pilots for Universal Design for Learning is done! We have learned so much from each and every person in the UDL Pilots. Amy and I are so proud of the work you all accomplished this year! The UDL Shareout on May 4th just went incredible! Check out the pictures below to see some pictures from the day.
Based on our UDL implementation rubric, teams continue to report personal growth in all phases of their UDL implementation. Even though the Pilot chapter of our UDL saga is closing, we want to encourage all Pilot teams to keep designing and growing in their integration of UDL and their use of it to solve the real instructional or otherwise problems they face on their school campuses. My favorite reflection from the UDL Shareout was several teams talking about how excited they were to try to implement UDL in a deeper way next year! How often do teachers report they are excited for next year in the month of May!?
Next year, as we start our new chapter in our UDL story, thank you in advance UDL Leads for being willing to step up and help lead your sites with their own UDL implementation plans. Remember our biggest wins these past two year came from empowering teams in the work and letting them choose their path to UDL discovery. That value will continue to be foundational as we write this new chapter together!
