Welcome to Episode 34 of the ThinkUDL podcast: Student Choice Menus with Eric Boyer. Eric Boyer is an Assistant Professor of Educational Foundations in the College of Education and Counseling at St. Martin’s University in Lacey, Washington. I got the chance to sit down with Eric at the Teaching for Active and Engaged Learning Lilly Conference in San Diego, California, February 27-29, 2020. Our conversation hits the high points of multiple intelligences, choice theory, self-determination theory, and reflective journaling. Eric’s background teaching high school and then teaching in the Education department at St. Martin’s University brings theory to practice in providing a menu of choices and motivational engagement to his classes. All of the things that Eric and I talk about are also available on our ThinkUDL.org resource page so if you want to look further into anything we discuss in today’s episode, you can follow up there. This conversation is filled with creative ideas and UDL applications and great ideas for teaching that could be applied to many different subject areas and circumstances. Join us for a lively conversation focussing on student choice and teaching innovation!
