This month we conclude our series on Universal Design for Learning (UDL). Originating in the world of architecture, Universal Design has plenty to tell us when it comes to optimizing learning in our classrooms by including ALL of our learners. While this series is mainly geared toward catechism instruction, UDL has applications in classrooms with adult learners as well. The author of the series is Paul Waldschmidt.
Professor Paul Waldschmidt, a 1999 graduate of Wisconsin Lutheran Seminary, teaches Education and Old Testament at the seminary. He previously served congregations in Normal, Illinois, and Hartford, Wisconsin. He also serves as the current editor of the Teach the Word newsletter.
