UDL MODEL SITE VISITS

The Universal Design for Learning-Implementation and Research Network (UDL-IRN) is sponsoring two concurrent UDL model site visits to Maryland schools. Individuals who would like to attend the model site visits may attend whether or not they are also attending the 2016 UDL-IRN Summit.  These model site visits will take place on Tuesday, March 15, 2016, the day preceding the main UDL-IRN summit on March 16 and 17.  This year, Great Seneca Creek Elementary School in Montgomery County, Maryland, and Prettyboy Elementary and Halstead Academy in Baltimore County are hosting the model site visits. When you register for the UDL-IRN Model Site Visit, you will need to indicate whether you want to visit the Montgomery County Public School or the Baltimore County Public Schools. 

These school visits are more than just walk-throughs.  They are structured experiences that will allow small groups of participants (4-5) to observe multiple classrooms and engage in dialogue with school personnel and students. We see these UDL school visits as opportunities for education leaders to view and reflect on the implementation of UDL. The following are the schedules for the model school visits
