UDL in 15 Minutes

UDL has helped the former and current principals and staff of L.C. Schmitt Elementary in Columbus, Indiana include students with more significant disabilities. How did that journey start and what’s going on now to maintain that momentum? Listen to the podcast episode here.

UDL in 15 Minutes will take a short break until the New Year. Be sure to tune back in for our next series on the Association of Educational Service District’s (AESD) Inclusionary Practices Project across the state of Washington.

Great Lakes UDL Experience

It’s your last chance to register for the UDL Great Lakes UDL Experience, starting Monday. Our focus this year will be on providing school leadership teams with a deep dive into systemic, school wide UDL implementation.

Leadership teams will receive a semester-long, immersive experience designed to help them understand and use the UDL School Implementation and Certification Criteria (UDL-SICC) to develop or refine their UDL implementation plan. The all-day training will take place on December 12th with both in-person and virtual attendance options and there will be follow-up sessions during the winter and spring. Learn more about this event.
