UDL Call for Proposals
Due: March 1, 2024
The theme for the Universal Design for Learning in Higher Education is
NO Labels, NO Limits: Exploring the Power of UDL.
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought about significant disruptions to the education landscape, highlighting the need for flexible, adaptable, and inclusive approaches to teaching and learning. Universal Design for Learning (UDL), a framework that promotes the creation of learning environments accessible to all students, has emerged as a powerful tool for addressing the diverse needs of learners in the post-pandemic era.
This conference will explore the transformative potential of UDL in fostering equitable and inclusive education in the post-pandemic world. Renowned experts and educators will share their insights and experiences, providing practical strategies and guidance for implementing UDL principles across a range of educational settings.
The focus is on applying the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework in ways that move us away from deficit-minded approaches to asset-based approaches in our inclusive practice. Successful conference proposals will describe how faculty, staff, or administration critically reassess their own practices and come together to take responsibility for the success of all learners.
Join us as we explore the transformative power of Universal Design for Learning in shaping a more equitable and inclusive educational landscape for all learners in the post-pandemic era. Together, we can build a brighter future for education, one that embraces the diverse needs and aspirations of all students. We invite you to submit conference proposals that showcase how you are implementing asset-based approaches in your practice. We look forward to seeing you at Goodwin University on September 27, 2024!
