Equity by Design with Hosts Katie Novak & Mirko Chardin
October 20: Chapters 1-8 - Will discuss how UDL, when used as a framework for equity, can provide equal opportunities to learn and succeed.
October 22: Chapter 9 and the authors Stories of Self. Participants will have an opportunity to reflect on their own identity and stories and what they mean for teaching and learning.
Join authors Mirko Chardin and Katie Novak as they share the power and promise of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) as a foundation for equity in our schools. Their book Equity by Design provides concrete action steps for educators, administrators, and parents who want systems that better meet the needs of our kids. Today, we have inclusive and diverse systems with so much incredible potential and young brilliant minds, yet we can predict student outcomes by their identity. When we embrace the wisdom of our learners and their families and create opportunities for "firm goals, flexible means" through the UDL framework, we will realize our fullest potential and will have the beliefs, skills, and systems that elevate and celebrate every student.
