UDL in 2020: Stories from the Field and a Toast to 2021

Wednesday, November 11th at 8pm ET
Oh, what a year it has been! 2020 has been filled with ups and downs, both in and out of the classroom. Educators across the country led a crisis response to the COVID-19 pandemic early in the year as we transitioned to remote learning/work and continued to find creative solutions to meeting students and families needs as a new school year started. To provide a proper and positive send off to 2020, we invite you to our final network and learn of the year where we will share stories from the field, highlighting the broad impacts UDL can have in 2020 and beyond. We will share successes related to the role UDL has played in supporting innovation, inclusion,  social-emotional learning, culturally responsive and sustaining practice, and positive outcomes for all students this year. We hope you’ll join us to reflect on the year that was 2020, and to toast to the new directions UDL can guide us on in 2021.

Campfire Conversation: The Student Perspective

As we transitioned back to school, students, parents, and educators have partnered across the country to present a variety of instructional models. These models primarily include: remote/distance online learning, hybrid models, and in some states the return to face to face instruction. In reopening schools, we heard from many stakeholders, however did we really listen to our most important stakeholder, our students? October’s ‘Campfire Conversation’ will share the findings of a national student survey featuring key topics, such as: engagement, relationships, belonging, obstacles to learning, and well-being. We will also hear directly from our panelists made up of students, parents, and teachers as they weigh in sharing their own realities and experiences this school year. Opportunities for attendees to interact with the moderators and panelists will also be provided. We look forward to seeing you on October 14th at 8pm ET to create opportunities to strategically support the learning and well-being of all our students, as we do the impossible and move teaching and learning forward through the lens of UDL.
