When schools are ready to build teacher support for school-wide implementation of UDL, they often encounter three distinct groups of teachers: 1) those who are excited and ready to embrace UDL, 2) those who have no interest in UDL, and 3) those who like the idea of UDL but feel overwhelmed by the perceived barriers. This breakout session is designed specifically to help participants address the concerns of the last group, the reluctant teachers. In this session participants will identify potential barriers for reluctant teachers, and consider some ways to remove these barriers for the reluctant teachers in their school or district. Join reluctant teacher-turned #UDLrockstar and 8th grade middle school teacher, Lois Sepahban, and the administrator who introduced her to UDL, Jennifer Pusateri, Universal Design Consultant, as we explore ways to remove barriers to UDL implementation for even your most reluctant teacher.
