Advancing UDL with Professional Learning Communities

This conference proceeding describes the rationale and structure of a professional learning community (PLC) in the implemention of UDL in a large school district.

No votes yet

About

True UDL implementation requires activities that lead to culture change; it is much more than an instructional bag of tricks or a collection of strategies. The implementation process differs across school cultures, and yet, in all cases the PLC model has been the driver of progress for Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS).
