Annual CAST UDL Symposium

The UDL Symposium was such a great opportunity for me to ‘refresh’ my knowledge and understanding of UDL. With such diverse speakers and participants, I experienced UDL as interpreted through many different lenses and my knowledge was enhanced by the experiences and perspectives of all who attended. I love choice, and having choice of varied learning sessions supported my own personal interests and professional needs in UDL. Taking these three days to ‘live’ UDL was a great decision for me. This experience will really pay off in my work, and my future thinking about UDL.
