Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a research-based framework that guides the development of flexible learning environments by centering learner variability and removing barriers to learning. This blended workshop will introduce participants to the core principles of UDL within a community of educators across the OSUN network. Participants will be encouraged to take part in online pre- and post- workshop activities and will develop an action plan for implementing UDL within their own learning environments.  

This is a blended online workshop, in which participants will have the opportunity to engage with the facilitators and other registered participants before, during, and after the live Zoom event. All registered participants will have access to the workshop in OSUN Brightspace beginning April 3rd.  

A detailed program and additional information are available for download. 

The event is open to all members of the OSUN community. Please register via this form by April 10.
