UDL Presenters’ Academy
This institute is designed to help educators build professional development capacity within their own school district, college, or university. In this institutes participants will be coached on strategies to deliver introductory UDL content as a UDL facilitator. Because every classroom, school system, and higher ed organization is different an because there is variability within systems, the implementation of UDL in a particular organization will be unique. Having presenters from within an organization lead UDL content delivery and discussion can help align specific initiatives and school processes to the UDL framework. In addition, the UDL presenter can facilitate scaling and optimizing UDL within their organization. It is recommended that participants for this institute already have an understanding of UDL.
