Are you looking to transform teaching and learning at your school? Join us in an engaging, hands-on professional learning series offered by the New Hampshire Department of Education and CAST, a world-renowned non-profit whose mission is to transform educational design and practice.


The New Hampshire Universal Design for Learning (NHUDL) Innovation Network is a multi-year professional learning program for educators who are committed to empowering all learners. Working with a school-based team, you will learn about the UDL framework, learn to apply UDL theory to instructional practice, and lay the foundation for schoolwide UDL implementation.


With other UDL teams from across the state: you will deepen your knowledge and understanding of UDL by:

  • engaging in online learning modules developed by CAST

  • participating in UDL Instructional Rounds facilitated at your school by CAST

  • consulting monthly with CAST via video conference (team facilitator & principal only)

  • attending in-person all-Network learning days in Concord

  • planning for school-wide implementation supported by CAST

One urban public school’s exploration of the impact of UDL…

Measurable Outcomes 2014-2017 Significant decreases in… external suspensions (-87%), detentions (-65%), retentions (-57%), special education referrals (-89%)
"As an administrator and teacher evaluator in two schools where UDL was virtually unknown, I had the opportunity to watch teachers change the way they planned lessons, and those changes could be directly attributed to their knowledge of UDL. Across the board, the single most important factor that initiated the improvement was UDL."
