Please register by March 12, 2018. The book study will start Monday, March 19, 2018 and will complete on Friday, May 4, 2018. 

This book study will invite participants to re-envision education through Universal Design for Learning. UDL is defined as an education framework based on research in the learning sciences, including cognitive enuroscience, that guides the development of flexible learning environments that can accommodate individual learning differences.

All participation is done via a blog that has been set-up. Participants will read the assigned chapters for the week, visit the blog page and contribute to the discussion by posting (at least 2 times during the 7 week period).

Viterbo credit is available.
