Teachers are exhausted because they do the lion’s share of the work. This workshop will guide teachers in reimagining time-consuming, teacher-led workflows that are ineffective and help them to shift to more sustainable student-led workflows.

This workshop will focus on developing a partnership with learners and embracing workflows that position the learners as active agents in the learning process. We’ll explore how teachers can leverage blended learning to create the time and space for these sustainable workflows and use the principles at the heart of Universal Design for Learning to ensure these workflows are accessible, equitable, and inclusive.

Teachers will leave this training with concrete strategies designed to help them shift to more student-led sustainable workflows. These workshops are hands-on and practice-based, so participants will leave with resources they can use immediately!

This collection of workshops is based on Catlin Tucker the presenter's book with Dr. Katie Novak titled UDL and Blended Learning 2: Shifting to Sustainable Student-led Workflows, which will be released in spring 2022!

Learning Objectives

Firm Goals: 

  • Understand how Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and blended learning work together to make designing and implementing accessible, inclusive, and equitable learning experiences sustainable. 
  • Explore the effectiveness of blended learning models in transferring the cognitive load to students and empowering them to take an active role in their learning.
  • Explore strategies designed to position students to discover information, freeing the teacher from the front of the room.
  • Play with discussion strategies to engage students in academic discourse that strives to remove barriers. 
  • Create routines and resources to support students in owning the conversation about their learning

Participants will

  • reflect and discuss Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and Blending Learning to create more accessible, inclusive, and equitable learning experiences. 
  • review Tuker and Novak's Workflows #1, 2, and 9 to support educators in allowing students to take ownership of their learning and to shift students to the center of the learning process.
  • identify one strategy or workflow to implement in their classroom and put into practice. They will develop an action plan to support their implementation.
