Universal Design for Learning (UDL) Part 1: Theory and Principles
Facilitated by Allison Posey, Curriculum and Design Specialist, Center for Applied Special Technology (CAST) and Mary Ann Tobin
Wednesday, 10/3/2018, Noon - 1:00 p.m.
Online Webinar

In the built environment, Universal Design enables each of us to gain unimpeded access to a particular place, whether or not we require some form of accommodation. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) applies a similar set of brain-based, research-backed principles to the learning environment. In this session, we will discuss the core UDL theory, including topics of learner variability and design. 

Allison Posey participates in curricular design, online course instruction, and leads professional learning programs, including the CAST UDL Symposium. She works with educators to integrate and apply current understandings from brain research about learning into instructional practices so that all learners are able to access, integrate, and become expert learners. She also coordinates the CAST free webinar series, free resources, and focuses on the central role of emotions in learning. Posey received a degree in Mind, Brain, and Education from Harvard Graduate School of Education where she also worked as a teaching fellow for courses such as Educational Neuroscience and Framing Scientific Research for Public Understanding. She also holds a Certificate in Fine Arts from the Maryland Institute of Art.

This presentation will take place via Zoom and will be recorded for future viewing.
