(All teachers) Universal Design for Learning 101 – SESSION FULL

October 22, 2018 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm

Anna Barrafato, Psychologist and Disability Accommodation Specialist, Concordia University

Workshop Code: #FD2
Room: 332

Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a set of principles for curriculum development that gives all individuals equal opportunities to learn. It provides a blueprint for creating instructional goals, methods, materials, and assessments that work for all learners. The three main principles of UDL are to provide multiple methods of engagement, multiple methods of representation, and multiple methods of action and expression. Flexibility is provided in the way information is presented, in the way students respond or demonstrate knowledge and skills, and in the way students are engaged.

In this workshop, you will learn:

  • About the history of inclusive education
  • How to differentiate between the medical and the social model of disability
  • The core concepts and principles of UDL
  • How to apply the UDL framework across any context

Her optional follow-up workshops will be on:
