Design and Deliver: Planning and Teaching Using Universal Design for Learning

Loui Lord Nelson’s book, Design and Deliver: Planning and Teaching Using Universal Design for Learning, breaks down the principles, guidelines, and checkpoints into easily understood language using classroom strategies and design techniques proven to be successful in a wide variety of classrooms.  During this webinar, Loui discussed highlights from the book including goal and assessment design, classroom design, and the use of UDL as a design tool.  (Due to a technology issue, the live audio stream was unable to be imported into the webinar recording.

UDL Myths & Misconceptions

Do you have a burning question about UDL that you’d like clarified?  For example, ‘What is the difference between UDL and differentiated instruction?’ Or, ‘Do I need technology in order to implement UDL?’  In this webinar, some of the most frequent myths and misconceptions around UDL were discussed, as well as the current CAST research and thinking being done to address these myths. Included in the conversation were CAST co-founder, David Rose and CAST’s Director of Online Learning, Rachel Currie-Rubin.   (Due to a technology issue, the live captioning stream was unable to be imported into the webinar recording.

CAST and Project OPEN Present UDL On Campus

This webinar showcased UDL On Campus, a new web resource from CAST.  UDL On Campus is a collection of resources that help postsecondary educators and administrators improve instruction through Universal Design for Learning (UDL).  The online resource is provided at no charge to users at http://udloncampus.cast.org. UDL On Campus offers educators tutorials and practical resources in UDL theory and practice across five categories: (1) Assessment, (2) Selecting Media and Technology, (3) Improving Institutional Policies and Practices, (4) Planning Your Course, and (5) Teaching Approaches. Within each category, users can find resources that demonstrate specific ways to address learner variability at the postsecondary level in an effort to improve learning opportunities, retention, and outcomes.  (Due to a technology issue, the live captioning stream was unable to be imported into the webinar recording.

UDL Now!

In her book, UDL Now! Katie Novak offers practical insights and savvy strategies for helping all learners meet high standards using the principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL). UDL is a framework for inclusive education that aims to lower barriers to learning and optimize each individual’s opportunity to learn. In this webinar, Katie discussed her book and answered questions from the audience. (Due to a technology issue, the live captioning stream was unable to be imported into the webinar recording.

A Discussion on UDL and Learner Variability

“Individuals are unique and learn in ways that are particular to them. And in the past quarter century, science has elucidated the great variability of the human capacity to learn…” (p. 49, Universal Design for Learning: Theory and Practice). In this webinar, David Rose and CAST Research Scientist Samantha Daley discussed the variability of learning and its implications for education. Specifically, they talked about recent findings in variability of affective networks that are involved in student engagement and it’s impact on learning and performance.


Universal Design for Learning: Theory and Practice, A Book Discussion

In this CAST Professional Learning webinar held on February 26, 2014, Anne Meyer, David Rose, and David Gordon discussed their new book: Universal Design for Learning: Theory and Practice.


UDL Implementation: Are You Ready?

In this CAST Professional Learning webinar held on December 13, 2013, Director of Implementation Dr. Patti Ralabate discussed the five phases of CAST’s UDL Implementation Process, described what UDL implementation looks like, and shared CAST’s services and tools that support integrating UDL implementation with other initiatives, such as the Common Core State Standards.
