Good teaching and learning starts with a well thought-out curriculum. Here at Durham we have developed a number of tools to guide you through the milestones of curriculum development and maintenance. This section has the guides, templates, and tools that you’ll need for developing quality curriculum with a special unit on UDL.
George Van Horn, Special Education Director at the Bartholomew Consolidated School Corporation (BCSC) in Colombus, Indiana and current Indiana CEC President implemented a Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework across his district. This month he was able to share his successes in a Senate hearing titled "The Promise of Accessible Technology: Challenges and Opportunities". The Superintendent of BCSC, Dr. John Quick explained that UDL is a set of principles for curriculum development that give all individuals equal opportunities to learn. Dr. Quick described how his district worked for years to implement UDL and how it incorporated technology into its student’s lives. "Moreover, he emphasized the point that although UDL specifically benefits students with disabilities, it benefits all students in the district and is used to help everyone better access knowledge and demonstrate learning growth. Training for professionals working in the schools is essential and in BCBS all teachers undergo a three day UDL workshop at the beginning of the year to ensure they can fully integrate UDL throughout their practice."
