Course description

Join Us for A UDL Book Study

Please join us to learn and implement strategies from the book unlearning Changing Your Beliefs and Your Classroom with UDL by Allison Posey and Katie Novak

unlearning book coverUniversal Design for Learning (UDL) suggests exciting ways to design and deliver engaging, rigorous learning experiences-as a growing international movement of UDL practitioners can attest. However, implementing UDL also requires us to unlearn many beliefs, assumptions, and teaching practices that no longer work. Why is changing what we do so hard? Authors Allison Posey and Katie Novak posit that, to change how we think about teaching, how to manage classrooms, and how to develop curriculum, we must unlearn. In a profession that spends so much time thinking about learning, the process of unlearning is what needs to happen before real change can happen.

This book study is a beginning look into the beliefs and practices of Universal Design for Learning and how it can reinvent your classroom for your students and you.

Focus in May 

Chapter 6 Take Action - Reflect on a student that inspires you to remind you why we are teaching. This is the time to take action to put what we’ve learned into practice and make sure that our design for learning supports every single student.
