UDL and Social Emotional Learning
Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a research-based framework for teaching and learning based on how people learn. Essential to a universally designed learning environment is the emotional readiness, psychological safety, and self-regulation students need for deep learning and growth. The UDL Guidelines allow educators to anticipate and address barriers to learning, including emotional barriers to engagement, effort, and ownership.
In this series of videos, Lisa Bosio from Novak Education describes the neurology of emotion, the necessity of flexible supports, and the building of student capacity for self regulation. Included are concrete actions teachers can take to leverage UDL to meet the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL)’s five core competencies.
