Sometimes we do things in a certain way simply out of habit, such as how we assign homework, grade papers, or conduct discussions. But breaking those habits is necessary to advance our teaching practices and change our systems to meet the needs of every learner. To break our tried-and-true practices, we must unlearn. Unlearning can be uncomfortable, as we experienced during the COVID-19 pandemic, but this discomfort is necessary for growth. This talk will explore how the Unlearning Cycle supports UDL implementation, so educators can transform outdated beliefs, assumptions, and teaching practices to empower and engage every learner.
