Universal Design for Learning Professional Development

Universal Design for Learning Center offers training on Universal Design for Learning (UDL) that is built around research-based concepts. The training teaches educational professionals how to design flexible curriculum, instruction and materials that are accessible to all students.

This professional development opportunity introduces a framework that assists in reducing barriers and maximizing learning opportunities for all students, including those with special needs. Specifically, this framework is designed to remove barriers to learning and improve access to instruction through multiple, flexible approaches.

This framework is not another initiative to add to the ever-increasing list. It brings together state and federal initiatives, such as Race to the Top, Ohio's Model Curriculum, Response to Intervention and 21st Century Learning, and provides strategies to integrate them throughout the learner's day.

Participants will leave with an understanding of the framework, tools and resources that support learning.

This workshop is designed for administrators, general educators, intervention specialists, curriculum specialists, technology specialists, and district and building leadership team members.

Note: If you are an Ohio School District wanting professional development or technical assistance, your local State Support Team will be contacted to deliver the event collaboratively.
