Every classroom community is made up of a variety of learners with varied strengths and struggles. Rather than reacting to the many individual accommodations that we receive each quarter, Universal Design for Learning asks us to be proactive by designing accessible classroom practices that support all learners. In this interactive workshop, participants will explore the principles of Universal Design for Learning in the contexts of their own classrooms. An emphasis will be on collaborative learning strategies and structures for student success.
