Title: Expecting Achievement: Universal Design for Learning and Access to the Curriculum for Low-Verbal-to-No-Verbal Students

Description: All kids must have access to the curriculum, so how do we raise the achievement bar for students who struggle to communicate? Examples of access to general education standards and curricula will be explored, using a UDL approach to identify barriers and to front-load solutions. This is for the K-12 population, across categories.

Date: April 24, 2017

Title: AEMing For Achievement; Student Growth Through Accessible Materials in Indiana

Description: Indiana has been involved heavily in a multi-year Intensive Targeted Technical Assistance grant with about 8 school districts per school year regarding Accessible Educational Materials and the policies, workflow, and procedures of how a Universally Designed Learning environment must include accessible materials. Daniel will talk about the process, show data, and next steps for further improvement and more widespread growth.

Title: UDL, Stability and Movement - Good Design=Good Control

Description: Let’s take a lesson from Elvis Presley. Elvis was fun to watch. He rocked the world with his gyrations and people marveled at what he could produce! I bet his movements were even described as spastic by some. We can take that same wonder to observe our students and figure out where we can help provide stability, so they can gain the control needed to access devices to interact with the world. Elvis and access? It’s all about the pelvis of course! We will explore basic and universal seating and positioning principles and apply them to the general classroom so students of all types can produce the best results.

Date: May 9, 2017

Time: 8:00am-9:00am EST

Presenter: Julie Kuhn

Title: Incorporating UDL into Teacher Based Teams

Description: Many districts use the Ohio Improvement Process (OIP) to align district and building goals and increase learning outcomes for all students.  This 30-minute webinar will discuss how the principles of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) fit into the OIP.  We will provide clear examples how Teacher Based Teams can incorporate UDL principles in the instruction and assessment of all students within Steps 3 and 4 of the 5 Step Process.

Title: Spontaneous AEM Adaptation

Description: Have you ever realized that some of your instructional materials will not allow all of your students to work independently during a last minute lesson plan change? Even though OUR plans change, our students still need independence and consistency. After all, a universally designed environment is ALL of the time, not just when planning is near perfection. With a few simple tools and the magic of optical character recognition (OCR), you can alleviate potential panic by creating accessible educational materials (AEM) in those spur-of-the moments quickly. In this webinar, Kelli will provide participants with multiple, free or low-cost ways to make that happen.

Title: One Way Teaching is the Wrong Way to Learning

Description: One of the first things a teacher must do when considering how to teach students is to acknowledge that each student does not learn in the same way. Much of the material used to educate students at grade levels beyond primary school is largely text and lecture based, which have significant limitations and often have barriers to learning. While reading is a very important learning mode, not all students learn effectively from reading. In this webinar, participants will explore some of the barriers in learning content material.

Title: Creating & Maintaining a Culture of High Expectations for All Students

Description: Shared Responsibility & High Expectations are emphasized in ESSA and in the November 2015 Dear Colleague Letter from OSEP for the purpose of growing student achievement for all students. While this sounds great and looks great on paper, the creation and maintenance of this sort of culture can be challenging. This webinar will provide a look at some ways this can begin, what high expectations actually mean, and how collaboration can more effectively occur through a model of UDL.

Title: True Grit Teaching

Description: Grit is passion and perseverance for students to achieve long-term goals. Grit is sticking with the future, day in, day out, not just for the week, not just for the month, but for years, and working really hard to make that future a reality. The best idea about building grit in kids is called growth mindset. Growth mindset is the belief that the ability to learn is not fixed, that it can change with your effort. As educators, we must try to cultivate this mindset in our students. In this brief webinar, we will explore the research and share ideas about helping acquire this disposition for academic success!

Title: Co-Teaching + UDL = Success!

Description: Co-Teaching is like a marriage. There is give-and-take. Each need to know their strengths and weaknesses AND one does not rule over the other. In this webinar, patrons will exam the benefits of co-teaching and co-planning. Just as when you’re working on your own, planning is an essential part of teaching. Planning is a little more complicated, though, when you’re doing it collaboratively. How will you divide up the work? Who will take the lead when? What exactly are you going to teach and how will you teach and assess student learning? Patrons will receive a few general tips for collaborative planning when co-teaching.

Title: “Knock Knock”...”Who’s there?”...”It’s ME!”


Description: As educators, we want to bring out the best in our students. This isn’t something that we should do FOR them; but by providing our students with a universally designed learning environment, they will be able to facilitate their best “ME’’ independently. In doing so, we must offer students multiple means of expression. In this webinar, participants will have the opportunity to observe at least 5 ways that students who might struggle with various aspects of academics can show what they know through the creation of accessible digital products utilizing free/low-cost apps, software, and websites.

Description: This 30-minute webinar will focus on how educators with the Growth Mindset have an easy time implementing Universal Design for Learning.
