Designing for Equity and Inclusion with UDL


Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is an evidence-based framework that establishes a common language for more inclusive teaching and learning, without sacrificing the rigor of an effective curriculum. With the resources and strategies highlighted in this session, school and district leaders will be better able to support educators to engage and include every learner in the curriculum by creating more accessible goals, methods, materials and assessments that support every student in becoming an expert learner who is career ready.
