Thanks for your welcome. I hope we can share experiencies with members from all over the world, especially from Latin American countries. I am a professor at Aconcagua University in Chile and also leading a training program for our teaching staff. As I am new in this community, I look forward to learning more about UDL. I know there is a UDL Workshop in Chile, sponsored by UDD, on october 25th, 2012. Congratulations for this valuable website!
Thanks for the welcome. I am the deputy principal and computer coordinator at a special school and look forward to meeting/chatting andengaging with others using technolgy and UDL withstudents with complex needs. Great concept and website.
Thank you so much for the welcome. I am researcher from University Ramon Llull (Barcelona, Spain) and I am deaf person. I doing research about faculties attitudes and actions towards students with disabilities and UDL. I look forward to learning much more about UDL with you all! Congratulations on this website!
Guess I should add that I do professional development in the arts for teaching artists and classroom teachers. I took a UDL course from VSA and am beginning to use it in my work. Love it!!! Finding Artists need it as much as non-artists becasue teaching to multiple intelligences is not automatic in any field. I am an Arts n Education program manager in Alabama.
Was wondering if anyone from CAST would be willing to Skype with our thematic dissertation group from USC's Rossier School of Ed? We are all doing research on UDL/Creativity/Innovation. Our class meets on Thursdays from 5pm to 9pm Pacific Standard Time. We meet again on March 8th.
I am part of a thematic dissertation group at USC's Rossier School of Education EdD program. Our groups theme is Universal Design, Creativity, and Innovation. We can take the theme in any direction and I am interested in researching how many teacher education programs teach the UDL Framework to their teacher ed candidates, do they teach the framework to both education specialist candidates, or also regular ed candidates. Then I would like to follow up with interview and surveys from those schools of ed that are teaching UDL Framework to candidates. Any feedback is much appreciated... previous studies similar to this, etc. Also, would anyone from CAST be willing to Skype with our thematic group on a Thursday evening around 5:00pm (pacific standard time) as to current research in UDL and future need for research? Many thanks!!
Thank you so much! I'm looking forward to getting to know much more about UDL and embedding it in instruction.
I haven't "dug around" this site too much yet, but one thing I'd like to find out more about is UDL courses, seminars, etc. Any information or links you and my colleagues can provide would be most appreciated!
I am currently piloting UDL with our Bureau of Indian Education schools on and near reservations across the eastern portion of the U.S. I have partnered with a former colleague to introduce and create beginning webinar sessions. If anyone has any suggestions on how to share and exchange ideas with future UDL teachers and their education technicians, please share what you may have done as you began the journey. Thanks:)
Para meu trabalho a UDL é muito importante, pois procuro utilizar o computador para estimular áreas no cérebro e descobrir novas habilidades ao indivíduo. Concordo que cada pessoa aprende de uma forma e nós devemos dar possibilidades para que isso ocorra, principalmente utilizando os recursos de mídia que tornam possível um maior aprendizado trazendo inúmeros benefícios para as escolas.
Devemos sempre estimular novas e modernas formas de aprendizado onde devemos ter flexibilidade e talento para ensinar nossos alunos da melhor maneira possível, afim de que toda sua evolução tenha significado.
