Announcing the UDL Professional Learning Free Webinar Series!

The goal of the 2014 webinar series is to host discussions around new research, tools, or happenings at CAST. We hope a broad range of educators join in our conversation: researchers, policy advocates, teachers, administrators, parents, and more.
February 2014 Webinar:
Join Anne Meyer, David Rose, and David Gordon as they discuss their new book:
Universal Design for Learning:
Theory and Practice

This new publication is an up-to-date multimedia online book (with print and e-book options) that leverages more than a decade of research and implementation, and is the first significant new statement on UDL since 2002.  An ambitious, engaging exploration of ideas and best practices that provides the growing UDL field with an essential and authoritative learning resource for the coming years.

UDL & Common Core
The National Center on Universal Design for Learning is pleased to announce new resources on the intersection of UDL and the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). These helpful tools and links illustrate the important way that the CCSS identify what educators need to address in their instruction while UDL guides how to design their instruction.
