#UDLchat: Learner Needs

August 21, 2019
Co-hosts: Ron Rogers & Alexis Reid

  • Q2: As an adult learner, what are some of the triggers (things that set off a strong emotional response) or barriers that get in your way of reaching a goal? What are potential triggers/ barriers your learners may experience?
  • Q3: Learning challenges may present differently across learning environments. Learners have shared that comments like “You just need to try harder” are incredibly invalidating. What are some phrases we can reframe to be more considerate?
  • Q4: Barriers can exist in learning environments, through interactions, and in the words we use. How do we protect and value the diverse tapestry of learner characteristics across contexts?
