The 6th Annual CAST UDL Symposium: UDL Rising

the 6th Annual CAST UDL Symposium, UDL Rising: Designing for Equity | #UDLrising

Wednesday, August 5 – Friday, August 7, 2020



The Universal Design for Learning framework was designed as a lever for change, one that addresses the inequities inherent in a one-size-fits-all curriculum. But in recent years, a larger conversation has emerged as to whether and how UDL should intentionally address the many barriers—systemic and individual—that limit learning for all. We are committed to advancing this larger conversation and exploring in greater depth the ways in which UDL can be leveraged to make more equitable learning environments and opportunities for students who have traditionally been marginalized. The Symposium will highlight promising work that is taking place in the field and will also serve as a forum to co-create a vision for how to more explicitly develop UDL as a framework for designing equitable learning opportunities for all.

Join us for a learning and networking experience filled with connected conversations that elevate our thinking around UDL Rising: Designing for Equity.

Follow and join the ongoing conversation using our hashtag #UDLrising on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn.
