CANCELED: Introduction to Universal Design for Learning
Jan 18 @ 9:00 am – 11:00 am

The Universal Design for Learning (UDL) Framework is a direct link in removing the barriers that our marginalized students face. It is found within the Every Student Succeeds Act as a means to provide flexible learning options to all students, and is a means of reaching Ohio’s One Goal of annually increasing the percentage of high school students who graduate, and one year later:

  • participate in some type of post-high school learning experience,
  • earn a living wage,
  • are enlisted in the military, or
  • are engaged in a meaningful vocation

 

Session 1 (for administrators only): We will set the stage for implementing the UDL framework in your school. Session goals:

    • define UDL and discuss why it is necessary
    • explore the components needed to support UDL implementation and prepare to apply it to your continuous improvement cycle
    • examine current structures to identify what supports are already in place, and areas that need strengthened
    • create action steps to operationalize UDL at the building level
    • discuss how to support teachers who are learning UDL and implementing it in their classrooms

The remaining sessions are for Building Leadership Teams (BLTs) and the administrator from Session 1.

Session 2: We will explore UDL together, examine its components and answer:

    • Why UDL?
    • What are the goals of the UDL framework?
    • How does growth mindset influence the implementation of UDL?
    • What are the characteristics of an expert learner?

Session 3: We will:

    • dig deep into the UDL framework
    • examine the connection between the UDL framework and Social Justice

Session 4: This session will set you up for success as we:

    • discuss what UDL looks like in practice
    • explore the UDL Practice Profile and identify areas that are currently in place
    • discover where to start and begin UDL implementation process at the classroom level

This time of post-pandemic transition is a great time to accelerate and strengthen student and staff learning. Guest presenter, Cathy Lassiter, Ed.D. will share strategies for leveraging the skills and knowledge gained during the past 18 months to launch you into a year of growth and learning.

This three-part series is highly interactive, with short reads, group discussions, self-reflections, and implementation planning. You will receive a copy of Leading the Rebound and Rebound Playbook by Douglas Fisher, Nancy Frey, Dominique Smith, and John Hattie to guide our work.

    • building students’ sense of efficacy
    • making learning relevant and engaging
    • using instructional time wisely and efficiently

We will also discuss how approaching instruction and learning with the right mindset and evidence-based practices will help accelerate student learning.

    • designing assessments that allow students to demonstrate mastery in diverse ways
    • involving students in the creation of knowledge, content, and curriculum
    • embracing diverse language usage in interactions

We will also analyze the effects of deficit thinking on content equity and consider ways to change how teachers think and act regarding marginalized learners.

 

Session 3: March 17
Leadership Practices for Deep Implementation

We will focus on what is required from school and central office leaders to get to deep implementation of practices that truly impact student learning outcomes. Explore different scientific processes that result in deep implementation including the stages of implementation:

    • Exploration
    • Installation
    • Initial Implementation

The Leadership Series for Bringing Back Better
Mar 17 @ 8:30 am – 3:30 pm

cathy lassiter* Note: This training will now be held virtually. An access link will be emailed to you.

This time of post-pandemic transition is a great time to accelerate and strengthen student and staff learning. Guest presenter, Cathy Lassiter, Ed.D. will share strategies for leveraging the skills and knowledge gained during the past 18 months to launch you into a year of growth and learning.

This three-part series is highly interactive, with short reads, group discussions, self-reflections, and implementation planning. You will receive a copy of Leading the Rebound and Rebound Playbook by Douglas Fisher, Nancy Frey, Dominique Smith, and John Hattie to guide our work.

Session 1: October 12
Post Pandemic Learning: Acceleration vs. Remediation?
Explore what research tells us about the impacts of remediation vs. acceleration in improving student learning outcomes, and which practices work best. Focus topics will include:

    • building students’ sense of efficacy
    • making learning relevant and engaging
    • using instructional time wisely and efficiently

We will also discuss how approaching instruction and learning with the right mindset and evidence-based practices will help accelerate student learning.

 

Session 2: January 21
Equitable Practices in ELA and Math

Discover instructional and cultural practices that foster learning at high levels for all students. The practices learned in this session will give attention to:

    • diversifying materials and content
    • teaching to learning outcomes that address equity and social justice
    • designing assessments that allow students to demonstrate mastery in diverse ways
    • involving students in the creation of knowledge, content, and curriculum
    • embracing diverse language usage in interactions

We will also analyze the effects of deficit thinking on content equity and consider ways to change how teachers think and act regarding marginalized learners.

 

Session 3: March 17
Leadership Practices for Deep Implementation

We will focus on what is required from school and central office leaders to get to deep implementation of practices that truly impact student learning outcomes. Explore different scientific processes that result in deep implementation including the stages of implementation:

    • Exploration
    • Installation
    • Initial Implementation
    • Full Implementation

Additional topics will include assessing readiness for change and procedures for scaling up. Finally, we will consider effective ways of de-implementation of ineffective practices.

equity by designKatie Novak and Mirko Chavin have provided a tool and a pathway for educators to begin the difficult conversations related to social justice and education.
