A Brief Look at the 2018 UDL-IRN International Summit

Image shows 2018 Summit participants in the Interactive Learning Village.

The Summit is not your traditional conference: it is two days of engagement from inspiring TED style talks to hands-on sessions that encourage you to embrace a new way of thinking about professional learning. Sure, there are sessions to sit-and-get information, but there are also interactive sessions for you to try, see, feel, and embrace what UDL means to the education system.

With 100+ sessions, this year’s summit program is the most diverse program to date. This year sessions cover a range of topics around UDL. Sessions integrate UDL and building, district, class, university level implementation, personalized learning, equity, research, evidence-based practices, education leadership, school/space-design, higher education, innovative technology, teacher education, STEM education, social emotional engagement, professional development, and more!  Of course, all participants also gain access to the 2018 UDL Summit Proceedings. Proceedings provide participants a way to review, network, and reference something well after the conference comes to an end, it gives you a hands-on guide to take home.  

This year, we are unveiling the Interactive Learning Village. This space is designed to give you the opportunity to engage with tools and strategies you can use for UDL implementation. Network with UDL professionals from around the globe while participating in the Crusader Game or attending social events like the UDL Block Party!
