Universal Design for Learning & CTE

Universal Design for Learning & CTE


2019-2020 Series for Career Technical Education Professionals

Presented by Lisa Hite, M.Ed., and Nicole Herbert, M.Ed., this series, designed for teams of career technical education professionals, will focus on learning about Universal Design for Learning (UDL) and how it can be incorporated into the CTE curriculum. During each of the four sessions, educators will focus on one UDL principle.

Participants will

  • learn how to reduce barriers to learning;
  • offer students multiple ways to receive information, engage with materials, and explain what they learn;
  • learn the difference between a fixed and growth mindset; and
  • explore how mindsets affect the perspective of both students and teachers.

Participants will share lesson plans, give feedback, and collaboratively plan to build each other’s instructional capacity. Participants also will learn how to revise lessons that meet the needs of all learners.
