Universal Design for Learning for Teachers
The goal of Universal Design for Learning is to use a variety of teaching methods to remove any barriers to learning and give all students equal opportunities to succeed. Universal Design for Learning targets students, from those with identified disabilities to students who are gifted and talented. Universal Design for Learning is about building in flexibility that can be adjusted for every student’s strengths and needs. Participants will learn about Universal Design for Learning and its benefits, as well as how to build flexibility into lessons that will address how information is represented, how engagement is built and how students can express what they have learned.
Universal Design for Learning for Administrators
Using UDL principles in the general education classroom makes curriculum and instruction accessible and engaging for all learners. Curriculum barriers are reduced; learning is supported; students gain knowledge, skills, and enthusiasm for learning; and their learning is validly assessed. In this three hour session administrators will learn that the Universal Design for Learning framework brings learning initiatives together and provides strategies for successfully integrating them into our day-to-day curriculum. The Universal Design for Learning framework supports initiatives that are typically already in place. It takes good instruction to the next level.
Learn about legislation supporting Universal Design for Learning, what a universally designed classroom should look like and how to support teachers implementing the UDL framework.
