Wednesday, July 28 – Friday, July 30, 2021
2020 was a year for the history books, challenging us to make unexpected changes quickly. We also confirmed that dramatic change in teaching and learning is possible. But 2020 also illuminated barriers to learning like never before. How do we ensure that the future is intentionally planned in a way that achieves the outcomes we hope for?
The 7th Annual CAST UDL Symposium will highlight promising work taking place in the field and will also serve as a forum to think about how we can begin to intentionally design for a better future right now. This year's event is not about UDL as it has always been. It is about the dramatic changes that we hope to see in the future and the innovations that can lead us there. Join us for a virtual learning and networking experience filled with connected conversations that elevate our thinking around UDL and the future designed.
By engaging in remote sessions that encourage innovative ideas, systemic thinking, and application of theory to practice, participants will:
- imagine new ways to improve the future of learning
- be inspired to lead innovative change in our unique settings
- examine how we unconsciously support systems that enable and reinforce barriers to equitable learning opportunities, along with strategies to minimize those barriers
- challenge assumptions about schooling and learning for all
