Hello everyone. I am Loui Lord Nelson, your presenter. I'm a born and raised Hoosier (Indiana) who just returned from a year in Boston. I was a post-doctoral fellow at CAST and Boston College and got to really dig into UDL. While I was there I wrote a book titled Design and Deliver: Planning and Using Universal Design for Learning which was recently published by Brookes Publishing. It's been a very exciting journey and I'm excited to bring some of that journey to you tomorrow.
