"There is a video on the National Center on UDL site of a first grade math class with commentary on how the activities are guided by the UDL guidelines. Even if you don't teach first grade there are some good ideas for incorporating UDL without…"

There are at several higher ed programs that provide UDL training for faculty. Here are a couple of links to them: SF State, Ohio State, UVM. Merlot/Elixer has a UDL digital case studies series that has lots of information too.
patti - thanks for the comment. i am a little confused about which thread this exchange is in. i joined the bookbuilder discussion a long time ago - and when i go to the wall from here i can't find your comment. is this from a different thread?

Glad to be in this space. I'm thinking about forming a group of BC students who will discuss their inquiry into UDL as part of my courses. This would be a kind of "action research" thing where shared notions of UDL applications would emerge collectively over time. I already use discussion forums in each of my courses, but it may be a good idea start a community of practice so that students would be encouraged to develop a UDL way of thinking and planning over time throughout their program of studies while at the Lynch School.
