Woodrow Wilson Academy of Teaching and Learning

Wednesday, February 13, 2019

CAST is proud to be named a Thought Partner of the Woodrow Wilson Academy of Teaching and Learning in its inaugural year. The WW Academy, a new graduate school of education built in collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, offers teacher candidates a problem-based curriculum leading to a competency-based Masters of Education degree and licensure in math, biology, or chemistry.

CAST Curriculum and Design Specialist Allison Posey advises the 10 first-year fellows on how to plan for learner variability using the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework. Posey, author of the new book Engage the Brain: How to Design for Learning That Taps into the Power of Emotion (ASCD), is a nationally known expert in UDL.

The WW Academy aspires to develop a breakthrough model for teacher and school leader preparation and promises to share its work on an open-source basis with college and university partners.

UDL Stories to Support Our Core Values

Every experience we have helps to construct our neural network. What stories are our learners' brains constructing based on the experiences they're having with us in our learning environments?
