Come to the 2016 UDL-IRN Summit!

The intent of the UDL-IRN  Summit is to gather practitioners and researchers from across the globe to build networks that support the systematic implementation of UDL in pre-school, K-12, and higher education classrooms. The summit is a unique opportunity to network and collaborate with educational leaders, practitioners, and researchers who are actively engaged in UDL implementation efforts. The Summit provides an excellent opportunity to build your professional network, share resources, ideas, and lessons learned.  

The goals of the Summit are to:

  • Identify and disseminate models of UDL best practices.
  • Identify and disseminate effective implementation tools.
  • Support and expand the UDL implementation research base.  
  • Foster increased focus and collaboration around UDL implementation and research

The 2016 UDL-IRN Summit will be hosted by Dr. Nancy Grasmick, former superintendent of Maryland State Schools and Towson University’s first Presidential Scholar for Innovation in Teacher and Leader Preparation. 


The Summit will take place at Towson University, Towson Maryland 21252 at the University Union Building.  In addition to UDL Talks and concurrent breakout sessions, a wide variety of networking opportunities will be built into the Summit.
