At crucial cross-roads of 21st century pedagogy in Higher Ed in the search for global, sustainable solutions for Inclusion: the potential of Universal Design for Learning

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

21st century pedagogy in Higher Ed has reached several crucial cross-roads.  These are raising considerable challenges with regards to change management, but also offer phenomenal opportunities for sustainable growth towards the Inclusion of all learners.  Current challenges in Higher Ed force us to rethink the very way we embrace learner diversity, but also the way we collaborate as professionals on our campuses, the way we integrate emerging societal trends and the way we conceptualize post-secondary learning and teaching generally.  It is within this complex and changing landscape that the potential of Universal Design for Learning as a sustainable systemic framework for Inclusion must be considered.   This interactive session will examine the impact of UDL as a tool for the management of change in our campus practices from these multiple perspectives.
