Universal design for learning TPL

Overview

The workshop is targeted at teachers wishing to ensure that they embed inclusive practices into their classroom. Workshop participants will develop understandings and strategies to respond to diverse learner needs. Based upon the groundbreaking research from CAST, particpants will critically analyse how three primary brain networks come into play when we are learning and examine strategies to provide a supportive and differentiated learning environment . The workshop will focus on:

  • The "what" of learning: - How we gather facts and categorize what we see, hear, and read. Identifying letters, words, or an author's style are recognition tasks.
  • The "how" of learning: - How we organize and express our ideas. Writing an essay or solving a math problem are strategic tasks.
  • The "why" of learning: - How learners get engaged and stay motivated. How they are challenged, excited, or interested. These are affective dimensions.

Where can I learn more about Blended Learning?

Individuals bring a huge variety of skills, needs, and interests to learning. Neuroscience reveals that these differences are as varied and unique as our DNA or fingerprints. Universal Design for Learning
(UDL) is a set curriculum development framework that provides a blueprint for creating instructional goals, methods, materials, and assessments that work for everyone--not a single, one-size-fits-all solution but rather flexible approaches that can be customized and adjusted for individual needs.
