Beverley Bunker and Yvonne Dawydiak had the opportunity to work with Danny Bakan and Marjean Brown’s students to help uncover some of the processes involved in planning unique learning experiences by applying UbD (Understanding by Design) and UDL (Universal Design for learning) perspectives. Thank you for sharing your time, ideas and questions with us this morning. Below are the resources we used in the session.
Please remember that we are more than happy to meet to discuss individual questions as they emerge for you at various stages in your own planning process!
To support this, as you may recall, the Education Library is hosting ‘Gearing up for Practicum’ planning consultations in Scarfe 155 in the library (the Scarfe Sandbox). If you sign up at least 24 hours in advance, the education librarians will pull resources in advance based on the information you provide in the RSVP form. Visit the session calendar to view dates and to sign up: http://scarfedigitalsandbox.teach.educ.ubc.ca/sandbox-session-schedule/
You can also find some planning templates and resources you might find supportive on the Designing Learning Blog (co-developed by Yvonne and Clare Rushton in TEO). These are not mandated resources but have been gathered because we felt they were good examples of templates that might help in the planning process. Most have been developed by local school districts. In particular, I like that the Coquitlam Unit Overview/Planning process template has key questions that can/should be addressed as you design learning. It can be found on the Big Picture Planning page.
You will also find a link to Shelley Moore’s blog: BlogSomeMoore, if you are interested in looking more deeply into inclusive teaching/learning. Shelley’s blog includes some real, teacher created examples of inclusive learning maps as well as some templates.
Please note that we haven’t included in this post the work students developed during class as part of our interactivities (we didn’t ask student permisssion to share these publicly – so we sent them by email instead).
Cheers and thanks again,
