This webinar is part of an instructional design series featuring Universal Design for Learning (UDL).  Each webinar in the series will focus on a UDL Guideline and the corresponding checkpoints; best practices and examples for meeting the checkpoints will be provided. The UDL Checkpoints 2.1-2.5 Webinar: Provide Options for Language and Symbols will discuss inequalities in the learning process that occur by presenting information in one form and the importance of ensuring alternative representations are provided for accessibility, clarity, and comprehension across all learners. UDL is a design framework that creates equity in education by removing barriers and optimizing student success by presenting information in an inclusive manner.  While completing the webinars as they are offered is encouraged, the UDL Checkpoints series does not have to be completed in order.

Session Date: September 30, 2021, from 12:30 pm to 1:00 pm


Upon completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:


  • Provide alternative representations for vocabulary, symbols, syntax, and structure 
  • Describe and select alternatives for decoding text, mathematical notations, and symbols
  • Identify tools to promote understanding across languages
  • Select methods for illustrating content through multiple media
