What is Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and Why Do I Need to Know About It?

Friday, June 5th, 8:30am

Heart of MO RPDC; 2 London Hall; Columbia MO (MU Campus)

Teaching rigorous curricula to a population of students with incredibly diverse backgrounds and abilities requires proficiency to integrate technology and accessible materials into content instruction. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a curriculum framework that emphasizes an integration of multiple learning strategies and content enhancements, in addition to multimedia presentation and digital materials that promote accessibility. Participants in this workshop will learn how to use UDL as an instructional framework for proactively designing curricula with the assumption of student diversity by integrating specialized instruction and accessible materials into general teaching practice. This training will be an exceptional opportunity for Special Education Directors, Curriculum Developers (or Assistant Superintendents), and Technology Directors to attend together in hopes that the UDL frameworks can be built in to curriculum development as well as classroom practices for all educators. Cost is $15. Lunch is on your own.
