National Center on UDL launches UDL Series

On November 17, 2011, the National Center on UDL (www.udlcenter.org) will introduce a new professional learning resource, the UDL Series. We invite you to join us and ask you to share this announcement with others. The UDL Series is a free online collection of rich media presentations (typically 15-20 minutes in length) that help educators to build UDL understanding, implementation skills, and leadership ability. The first session, entitled “Learner Variability and UDL,” features Drs. David Rose and Todd Rose discussing how UDL addresses systematic learner variability. It also includes real examples of how two educators apply the principles of UDL to meet varied learner needs. Once launched, the UDL Series will be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at www.udlseries.udlcenter.org.
