    I was inspired to be a part of CAST because the training I expected to receive would enhance my knowledge and skills in instructional design, using the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework as the lens for exploration. UDL has provided me with much more and helped me to explore universal design principles in the construction and implementation of assessments within the graduate courses I teach and in supporting the master’s degree candidate students I encounter in implementing these principles in their practices.

    I was Executive Director of the Carl and Ruth Shapiro Family Foundation during the time when we supported CAST in 2008-2009 for the Read-with-Me eBooks Project. During this period, the Foundation was very interested in supporting assistive technology for persons with disabilities. This project was an outstanding example of Universal Desgn for Learning (UDL), benefitting all learners who may be struggling with their reading skills. The President of the Foundation, Ronny Zinner, and I went CAST's headquarters in Wakefield to see first-hand how this project worked. Not only were we impressed with the project itself, but we were able to get a complete tutorial on UDL - now understood worldwide to be an educational practice that benefits all kinds of learners.

    In 2021, I had the privilege of working with CAST colleagues for six months as part of my Fulbright Scholarship to Boston. They agreed to a day a week with them, working on the review of the UDL Guidelines. While I expected a warm welcome, the entire CAST team's generosity was more than I would have ever expected. In the Covid-prescribed work-from-home mode, I was assigned two CAST colleagues, Jenna Gravel and Nicole Tucker-Smith, whom I now consider friends, to connect with me. We connected online before I arrived in Boston, and once there, we had weekly virtual collaborative meetings to review checkpoints and look at the new Guidelines. What I loved was that Jenna and Nicole were authentic in their conversations with me from the outset and welcomed and valued my perspective. What we created was a learning community of three with branches to the wider CAST community. I remember my welcome at the first CAST staff meeting and the fun Google doc of ""things for Mags to do"" that included invitations to lunches, a visit to the CAST office, and people's hometowns. A conversation with David Rose, which led to a podcast, was also arranged. My experience validated my work at home in Ireland and showed me that the CAST team doesn't just talk UDL. They live it. One of the little nuggets Jenna, Nicole and I discussed was the hope of a UDL International Symposium in Ireland, an idea that came to fruition with the support of Jenna and CAST in 2023.
