UDL for Accessible and Visible Learning: A focus on Pre-Service early childhood educators

  • We have observed a wide disparity in attitude and aptitude in English Language proficiency (which is fundamental to becoming an effective early language and literary educator) and general teaching exposure/abilities in our diploma module, which has resulted in challenges relating to engagement, comprehension, and motivation.
  • We aimed towards ensuring accessibility in the learning process through the designing of lessons and the process of teaching so that it would cater to the diversity of student needs.
  • In order to achieve that, we decided to adopt the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) as part of our overarching framework, considering that it is an approach that works to accommodate the needs and abilities of all learners.
