Robin Spring shared with me a new podcast that may be of interest. Here's some information from the publisher of the podcast:
Think UDL is the Universal Design for Learning podcast where we hear from the people who are designing and implementing strategies in post-secondary settings with learner variability in mind. Our host Lillian Nave interviews people around the world who are bringing UDL to university and real-world contexts.
Our first episode is entitled:"Why Learn?" The episode features an interview with Dr. Eric Moore from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville, and includes a discussion about the affective networks of the brain in learning (why learn anyway?) and what is going on in UDL in the Higher Ed world nationally and internationally.
