About
Solely focusing on teacher knowledge of UDL and classroom implementation isn't enough. This workshop dives into the critical need for understanding, valuing and celebrating the variability of learners by addressing intersectionality, identity, perception and implicit bias. It is from this point educators can mitigate disabled environments and curriculum design fraught with barriers to learning. In the same vein, it is the responsibility of educational leaders to increase their expertise around the UDL framework as it applies to the classroom setting and the system as a whole within which they function. In order to fully realize an educational vision of equity for all and supporting enabling environments for teaching and learning to occur, the UDL mindset must permeate all levels of the system; hiring, mentoring, family engagement, data analysis and use, initiative alignment, culture/climate, etc. The fidelity, scale, and sustainability of UDL implementation requires it.
