Description

This introductory course, which is limited to 30 participants, is designed to teach educators about the core concepts and foundations of UDL, practical applications of UDL to lesson design, and how to support flexible, inclusive instruction. We know from experience and neuroscience that individuals learn in varied ways. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) provides educators with a lens to identify and reduce barriers that limit learning. Join us to discuss how all learners can meet high expectations. 

Please note this is a hybrid course including five digital modules and seven live coaching sessions hosted on Zoom. The live sessions are designed to solidify learning by providing space for questions, make learning relevant by connecting it with current professional goals of practice, and extend learning by providing additional resources.

Using the UDL framework and its practical guidelines, participants will:

  • Understand and apply the foundational concepts of UDL
  • Design using the UDL design process
  • Understand the structure of the UDL Guidelines
  • Identify UDL in practice

Upon completion of the institute, participants will receive an official CAST certificate.

Educators (general, special education, curriculum coordinators, administrators, instructional technology specialists, paraprofessionals, college and university faculty, adult education faculty, professional learning facilitators, etc.) new to UDL or who would like a refresher as they begin to deepen or lead UDL work. Individuals and groups of educators of all levels are welcome.
