Interactive Keynote Presentation:

“Universal Design for Learning (UDL) Immersion Experience”

The brain research is compelling, the premise, career changing, but what does it feel like to be a student in a UDL classroom? Come find out! In this session, higher education faculty will experience how even the most mundane topics can set the room abuzz when curriculum is planned without the presence of traditional barriers. Between each mini-lesson, faculty will receive concrete tips to help them implement UDL in their own learning environments, whether they are face-to-face or online. This keynote is perfect for attendees who want to see how the research translates into a challenging and unforgettable experience for all learners.
