The 5th Annual CAST UDL Symposium: Becoming Expert Learners

Location
1585 Massachusetts Ave
Cambridge, MA

Description

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 did so with the support of a new network of colleagues.
