Event information

As educators, we are expected to implement an educational framework built on the belief that “all means all,” but we are faced with very political and public rhetoric that sends a different message. In this session, join Mirko Chardin and Katie Novak as they share how UDL can be leveraged as a foundation for equity when we are willing to name and eliminate barriers that have created inequitable, exclusionary, and oppressive systems. We need to transform schools and ensure that students and all stakeholders learn to appreciate, value and respect diversity, embrace their own identity and take action against inequity and injustice. Only then, can Universal Design for Learning (UDL) be optimized.This webinar, Equity by Design: How UDL Provides Equal Opportunities to Learn, will cover:

  • How UDL provides a framework to build more equitable systems
  • How embracing identify and diversity allows us to move beyond access to ensure equal opportunities to learn
  • How flexibility, choice, and voice help us to value impact over intentions
