Fireside #UDLchat

December 16, 2016

It's the third Wednesday of the month...

You think to yourself, “I love Wednesdays. First and third Wednesdays are #UDLchat days.” You anxiously await 9pm ET / 6pm PT when you will once again join together on Twitter with colleagues from around the world only to learn... #UDLchat IS ON VACATION! Wait! What?! How can they do this?! How can “they”, whoever “they” are, so frivolously push the pause button on this shining beacon of eduhope, learner variability, UDL goodness and positivity?

Suddenly you remember. #UDLchat isn’t a “they”. It’s an us. It’s a me. You say to yourself, “I’ll use the hashtag tonight to start a conversation with others like myself; fellow educators who are passionate about Universal Design for Learning, teaching, and sharing. Sure it’s near the end of 2015 and I have final projects to grade, but we can still gather around the Twitter fireplace to ask questions, share ideas, and challenge each others’ thinking with a spirit of openness and growth.”

That’s right folks. #UDLchat is what you make it. Such freedom! Such power! Such possibility! So go ahead. Check in tonight at 9pm ET / 6pm PT to start or join the conversation. Make new connections. Tackle the issues near and dear to your heart. And of course, you can keep that conversation going every day, 24/7/365. #UDLchat never closes for a snow day.
