#UDLchat: TQE Protocol

October 3, 2018
Co-hosts: Joni Degner & Bryan Dean

#UDLchat is always pushing the boundaries of traditional education-focused Twitter chats, and this past Wednesday’s chat was no exception. Joni & Bryan led participants in the TQE protocol in response to a series of quotes that CAST has tweeted out over the past few years.

What’s the TQE protocol? TQE stands for Thoughts, Questions, and Epiphanies. Participants were invited to share one or more of these in response to each quote prompt. The result? A lively discussion that was both personal and rooted in best practice around Universal Design for Learning.

Prompt #1

“With hope, learners can overcome any obstacle.” — Luis Pérez

Prompt #2

“If we are not addressing emotions in our classrooms, then we are not addressing how students learn.” — Allison Posey

Prompt #3

“The idea that ability leads to opportunity needs to be reversed. Give people opportunities, and it will lead to ability.” — Emma Van der Klift & Norman Kunc

Do these quotes prompt any Thoughts, Questions, or Ephiphanies for you? Let us know in the comments, or tweet out your TQEs using the #UDLchat hashtag.

The next #UDLchat will be Wednesday, October 17 from 6:00–6:30pm PT / 9:00–9:30pm ET (UTC-4) on Twitter. Sign-up for reminders if you don’t want to miss the lively, fast-paced conversation!
