Universal Design for Learning offers a powerful framework for providing meaningful access to the curriculum and to teaching/learning experiences for all students. The arts are particularly compatible with Universal Design for Learning because, by their very nature, they provide and engage multiple forms of thinking, learning, expression, and understanding. This session will provide attendees with strategies and frameworks in the arts that can facilitate the use of Universal Design and personalized learning across the curriculum.

Please contact us if you need a partial scholarship.
This space is accessible for people in wheelchairs. If you require additional accommodations, please let us know by July 12.
