Universal design for learning (UDL) and differentiated instruction (DI) are effective approaches that support student achievement. The focus of this third in our five-part webinar series is on classroom supports using UDL and differentiated instruction in secondary CTE for all students, including students with disabilities. Please join us for a focused discussion concerning classroom supports using UDL and DI in secondary CTE settings.
Session participants will:
1. Learn about the CAST framework of UDL and approaches one school district uses to support classroom instruction as a philosophy of teaching and learning.
2. Learn the fundamentals of differentiated instruction with approaches to support effective teaching, individual learning, and maximize student engagement.
3. Learn strategies, best practices, and practical insight for practitioners with a focus on secondary CTE settings and student achievement.
