In the essay, Cracks in the Foundation: Personal Reflection on the Past and Future of the UDL Guidelines, CAST Co-Founder David Rose outlines critical barriers to learning such as racism, genderism, ethnocentrism, and ableism. He argues that UDL must play a stronger, more explicit role in addressing these injustices and barriers.
In this interactive webinar, we want to learn from you. What gaps and biases are inherent in the current version of the Guidelines? Where do you find there to be cracks in the UDL foundation? Please review the essay before the webinar and come with your questions, ideas, and concerns.
Co-authors Jenna Gravel, CAST Director of Research and Curriculum for Professional Learning, and Nicole Tucker-Smith, CEO of Lessoncast, will join David. They will provide context to the essay and behind-the-scenes insights into the writing process. They will share about the UDL Rising to Equity initiative, a community-driven process to re-envision the UDL Guidelines. We look forward to learning from you.
