The 2021 UDL-IRN International Summit

Every year around this time, the UDL-IRN releases our save the date notice for next year’s International Summit. The worldwide COVID-19 crisis continues to greatly impacted the field of education and all of us are facing uncertainty in planning for the coming year. 

What we do know is this: we will be hosting some form of the UDL-IRN International Summit in the spring of 2021. Our current plan is to host an online conference with the possibility of integrating small, regional in-person gatherings. Details of these plans will be released as more information becomes available. 

Though we are unable to predict exactly what the 2021 UDL-IRN International Summit will look like, we know that we will continue to support the field and grow alongside our UDL colleagues. Critical conversations around UDL must continue with all of us, every voice, especially in these trying times. 

As always, thank you for your continued support of the UDL-IRN at CAST, and we look forward to more exciting work with you.
