A UDL-IRN HIGHER EDUCATION SIG
In this session, Liz will open with an overview of her perspectives, experiences, and knowledge about the intersection of culture and UDL. Then, we’ll reflect on and discuss our own experiences about culture, including the relationship between race and culture. We’ll explore the connections between culture and the UDL guidelines, and work together to identify natural “fits” as well as connections that teachers and learners are already making. Also, we’ll discuss how UDL and culture impact you, students, and teaching and learning practices, and share ideas and practices from the field.
