Universal Design for Learning (UDL) has the potential to disrupt and transform higher education, increasing access and engagement for many learners. But it can sometimes be hard to know how to start the UDL conversation with colleagues and leaders. While you might be tempted to launch into your UDL elevator pitch or whip out a dog-eared graphic of the UDL principles, this TED Talk style session introduces six ways to start the conversation by helping shift thinking towards a UDL mindset in your everyday conversations. These shifts help us listen better, make better use of the conversations, and build better relationships in UDL learning and implementation.  In this session, we will describe each of the six shifts, give examples, and share tools for capitalizing on opportunities to shift towards a UDL mindset in everyday conversations. If you are starting - or would like to start - UDL conversations on your campus, this session will give you some new ideas to try.
