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"
