Inclusive Practice SIG: Universal Design for Learning: a user-friendly approach
Date: 19th May 2023
Time: 3.00pm – 4.30pm (BST)
Following ideas and suggestions put forward by those RAISE Inclusive Practice SIG members who attended the last RAISE Conference, we will be holding an online session focussed on Universal Design for Learning (UDL).
There will be external input regarding UDL, discussing its beginnings and analysing some critiques before opportunities for participants to share practice and discuss ideas for practical implementation before finally leading to a Q&A with the workshop leaders.
We are hugely fortunate to have the session led by Virna Rossi alongside contributions from Charles Wachira from the US (see their biographies below).
