"Individuals are unique and learn in ways that are particular to them. And in the past quarter century, science has elucidated the great variability of the human capacity to learn..." (p. 49, Universal Design for Learning: Theory and Practice). Join CAST research scientist Samantha Daley and other CAST staff as we discuss the variability of learning and its implications for education. Specifically, we will talk about recent findings in variability of affective networks that are involved in engagement and impact learning and performance."

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) has a great ring to it as it infers that lessons and instruction are designed for all learners in the classroom. Can you imagine learning environments where all learners can thrive? Using the UDL lens to understand the learners in your classroom can help teachers do exactly that.

 

Placing this concept in the field of education, the Center for Applied Special Technology (CAST) coined UDL to apply to all learners, regardless of (dis)abilities. In 2003, CAST has been creating instructional materials for over 10 years, mostly digital, to fit this principle of “universal”. Now 10 years later, the concept is finally becoming more known in our new times of the Common Core and increasingly accessible digital technologies.

UDL - Addressing the Variability of All Learners, Nov 1-2

UDL - Addressing the Variability of All Learners, Nov 1-2 | Universal Design for Learning and Curriculum | Scoop.it

CAST is conducting a two-day institute,

"Universal Design for Learning (UDL): Addressing the Variability of All Learners", on November 1-2, 2012.

 

"In this two-day institute, participants will explore these questions while learning about the principles and application of UDL. In addition to hearing presentations from leaders in the field of UDL, participants will have the opportunity to actively engage in guided practice and hands-on experiences as they work on the development of a lesson, unit of study, or action plan to integrate UDL into practice.

 

The institute highlights UDL, emphasizing the UDL guidelines and application to practice, including:

> Connections between learning and neuroscience

> The three UDL principles and related benchmarks and checkpoints

> The curriculum framework of goals, methods, materials, and assessment as a structure for designing lessons

> Examples of practice that illustrate alignment of UDL to curriculum

> Hands-on exploration of technologies that support UDL

> Understanding that UDL is a change initiative"

CAST is offering 2-day Institutes in March, May and August, "UDL: Addressing the Variability of All Learners".  Participants gain:

 

> A working knowledge of the neuroscience of learning and how individual variability plays out in different educational environments

> Guidelines and techniques to apply UDL principles to the design of lessons and curriculum units so all learners can reach the goal

> Strategies, both with and without technology, for classroom practice which includes CAST learning, authoring, and planning tools such as: UDL Book Builder, UDL Studio, UDL Connect, UDL Editions, Science Writer, and UDL Curriculum Self-Check
