CAST's 4th Annual UDL Symposium: Empowering Learners


Monday, July 30 – Wednesday, August 1, 2018

Harvard Law School Campus
Cambridge, MA


This year’s UDL Symposium is an opportunity to come together as a community to explore the promise of Universal Design for Learning for empowering learners. By engaging in sessions designed to encourage critical conversations, problem-solving, and hands-on exploration, participants will consider empowerment through a UDL lens. Participants will leave with a deeper understanding of the important role empowerment plays in learning and with concrete examples of ways to leverage UDL for these critical aims. Further, it is our intention that this Symposium will serve to empower participants themselves. We hope that participants will leave with the confidence and the motivation to apply their learning to their practice—and with a new network of colleagues to encourage and support their efforts.
