Customized Professional Learning
We enable any educational organization to work closely with CAST's UDL experts to identify issues and challenges; develop goals and action plans for sustainable change; facilitate discussions around how to build consensus among teams and cohorts; and implement innovative, job-embedded professional learning that ensures long-term growth and improvement.
CAST’s customized solutions are designed to address the needs that educational organizations face in meeting the challenges of learner variability. We work with educational leaders and collaboratively plan the right combination of services that may include:
- Online courses, webinars, and onsite workshops that develop content knowledge and application skills for paraprofessionals, general education teachers, special education teachers, and other school-based professionals
- Innovative, job-embedded professional development to teach the coaching of UDL so that schools and districts can independently scale their UDL implementation
- Leadership workshops that guide administrators through the creation of a diverse UDL team, analysis of school/district data, development of an implementation plan, implementation and evaluation of change cycles, and long-term, ongoing improvement.
