I am Allison Posey, one of the institute facilitators. I currently and the Director of CAST's Institutes and Workshops and work in instructional design. My teaching background includes high school science (biology, anatomy, psychology), arts education, 'GT' education, and inclusion of Mind, Brain, and Education perspectives. Outside of work I like to jog and paint, although I rarely have enough time- my two kids keep me very busy and my house has plenty of 'fix-it' projects.
One of my favorite UDL- artist examples is Paul Smith, a typewritter artist: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XiHyQhf9qAY
