CAST's Annual UDL Symposium


CAST's Annual UDL Symposium is an opportunity to go beyond the basics of Universal Design for Learning and explore the intersections between UDL and larger topics in the field of education. Past Symposia have explored learner engagement, building a UDL community, social justice, and learner empowerment.

The 2019 UDL Symposium offered an opportunity to explore what we mean by becoming expert learners. In sessions that encouraged hands-on inquiry, problem-solving, and critical conversations, participants discovered how to teach and practice the habits of resourceful, strategic, and motivated learning. We gained a deeper understanding of expert learning’s purpose and with concrete examples of how Universal Design for Learning helps us achieve it. Together, we harnessed the motivation and the tools to bring expert learning strategies back to our communities — and do so with the support of a new network of colleagues.
