You’re acquainted with the Universal Design for Learning framework and the UDL Guidelines. Maybe you’ve tried some strategies in your classroom or redesigned lessons or units. You’ve seen the beginnings of a powerful change in your practice. Perhaps you’re part of a UDL team in your school working to grow more systematic implementation. What’s next? Where can you find the inspiration needed to amplify your work?

 Imagine yourself:

  • Visiting other classrooms and schools where UDL is already part of the learning design
  • Chatting with teachers and administrators who have been implementing UDL in your grade level or subject area
  • Experiencing UDL as a learner yourself and applying it to your own practice

Bartholomew Consolidated School Corporation (BCSC) in Columbus, Indiana—a district that has been implementing UDL for over a decade—and CAST—the organization that pioneered and maintains the UDL framework and UDL Guidelines—have come together to offer a unique professional learning experience where you will experience UDL in action. Beyond theory, we’re going straight to practice in schools and classrooms where UDL has been part of the culture and decision-making from the ground-up.

You will spend the first day discussing the core strategies and tools to implement UDL with experts from CAST and experienced BCSC educators. You’ll then visit K-12 classrooms where UDL comes to life across all content areas and age levels at BCSC, culminating in an opportunity to develop your own plans for UDL implementation in your learning environment.

Join us and experience what it means to become purposeful and motivated, resourceful and knowledgeable, and strategic and goal-directed in your UDL implementation.


This event is appropriate for individuals, schools, or districts who are new to UDL implementation, as well as those ready to take their UDL implementation to the next level.
