Hi! My name is Don Glass. I am a visual artist and educator who has held positions at the Annenberg Institute for School Reform at Brown University, the Louisiana Division of Arts, and the Philadelphia Education Fund.
I am a former Universal Design for Learning Leadership Fellow at Boston College and CAST. The Fellowship program is funded through the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Special Education Programs. During my Fellowship, I worked on revising the Universal Design for Learning (UDL) Guidelines, designing blended online higher education courses, and developing tools and protocols for the UDL evaluation at the district level.
Prior to my Fellowship award, I was the Director of Outcomes and Evaluation at VSA and the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. My work at VSA focused on building evaluation capacity to gather, use, and share valuable knowledge about inclusive arts teaching and learning, particularly using the framework of UDL.
I hold a B.F.A. from the University of the Arts and a M.Ed. from Tyler School of Art, Temple University in Philadelphia, as well as a Ph.D. from the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa. My doctoral research focused on national arts and culture curriculum reform and teacher professional development in post-Apartheid South Africa.
