The Universal Design for Learning (UDL), as discussed by Meyer, Rose, and Gordon (2014), suggests that engagement begins when a lesson designer considers multiple learning styles and implements them into his or her practice. I often find it difficult to always follow UDL practices, especially when covering certain topics that do not naturally lend themselves to a variety of learning styles.
What are some ways you achieve student engagement with various learning styles?
