NH UDL: New Hampshire UDL Innovation Network

A group of educators collaborating with sticky notes and the UDL Guidelines

Project Name
New Hampshire UDL Innovation Network

Project Description

The New Hampshire Universal Design for Learning (NH UDL) Innovation Network is a multi-year job-embedded professional learning program for New Hampshire educators who are committed to empowering all learners.

Now in year six of the project, CAST partners with the New Hampshire Education Department along with more than 70 schools and 600 educators across the state. Participants engage with a small team from their school to learn what UDL is and how to apply it in their learning environments. Through collaborative school-based instructional rounds, online learning, statewide workshop days, and team-supported reflective practice, participants work to transform their classrooms for greater access and to support student agency. We empower participating educators as collaborators, leveraging a UDL approach to supporting their learning as designers and learners themselves.

One of the toughest challenges in education is helping every student find a pathway to a bright future. There is no “one-size-fits-all” key to learning, and no single approach will work for all students. Universal Design for Learning is New Hampshire’s way to help educators across our state tackle the wide-ranging needs of all our students, and help them both recognize student variability in the classroom, but design education solutions so that ALL students can learn.
