    Using Universal Design for Learning (UDL) to Promote Achievement for All with Project-Based Language Learning (PBLL)

    • June 22 & 29, 2022
    • Project Lead(s): Naiyi Xie Fincham
    • Facilitator(s): Nicole Naditz

    In our two-part NFLRC Webinar titled Using Universal Design for Learning (UDL) to Promote Achievement for All With Project-Based Language Learning (PBLL), we will explore how teachers can design more powerful PBLL experiences through implementation of UDL Guidelines.

    In order to get maximum benefit from the two webinars, we recommend that you 1) familiarize yourself with Universal Design for Learning beforehand and 2) have experience with Project-Based Language Learning (PBLL). This, however, is not a requirement, and any participant with interest in both is welcome to attend.

    NOTE: These webinars will be recorded and made available as OER (open educational resources).
