The 5th Annual CAST UDL Symposium: Becoming Expert Learners

Location
1585 Massachusetts Ave
Cambridge, MA

Description

The 2019 UDL Symposium offers an opportunity to explore what we mean by becoming expert learners. In sessions that encourage hands-on inquiry, problem-solving, and critical conversations, you will discover how to teach and practice the habits of resourceful, strategic, and motivated learning. You will gain a deeper understanding of expert learning’s purpose and with concrete examples of how Universal Design for Learning helps us achieve it. Together, we will harness 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. Join us to explore and experience the power of expert learning!
