We invite you to view the presentation recording prior to joining this discussion.  

How do you make connections to spread the UDL message and support statewide UDL implementation?  The Special Education Technology Center in Washington State has created innovative strategies, supports and trainings to connect school districts and educators across our state.  Our goal is to empower leaders and educators in the classroom to embrace UDL and step forward from wherever they are onto a path toward inclusion.  This session will be interactive with practical examples, tips and tools we have learned on our UDL journey as well as reflection and discussion time to draw on the rich experience of our participants.    

Learning Objectives: 

  1. At the end of this session participants will identify at least one professional development strategy to support educators with UDL implementation  
  2. At the end of this session participants will target 2 innovative ideas to share with their district or agency in support of UDL implementation.
