Universal Design for Learning (UDL) Training #1 for Region 4 COE Technical Assistance Providers

 

This 2-day interactive and experiential workshop provides the research basis for UDL, practical applications of UDL to lesson design, and helpful technology tools that support flexible and inclusive instruction. Workshop participants are provided with access to innovative strategies for teaching and learning that they can use in their practice or share with their constituents for large-scale problem solving around curriculum and instructional design.

Build relevant and practical skills and knowledge of UDL to support first-best instruction at your county’s districts and schools.

Organizer

Region 4, System of District and School Support

No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001 requires each state to establish a statewide system of intensive and sustained support and improvement for local education agencies and schools receiving Title I funding to increase opportunities for all students to meet state academic content and achievement standards. As a result, the Regional System of District and School Support (RSDSS) was established, and partners with the California Department of Education (CDE), the Comprehensive Assistance Center, and county offices of education to form the Statewide System of School Support (S4) and satisfy the requirements of NCLB. The RSDSS of Region 4 provides leadership, resources, and technical assistance to the schools, districts, and county offices of Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo and Solano in order to increase their collective capacity to support students in meeting or exceeding the state's academic content standards.

Cancellation Policy: Registrations cancelled seven (7) working days or less prior to the workshop are assessed the full charge of the registration.  If the registration is cancelled eight (8) to fifteen (15) working days prior to the workshop, a fifty percent charge is assessed.  If the registration is cancelled sixteen (16) or more working days prior to the workshop, a full refund is given. ***RSDSS reserves the right to cancel or reschedule our trainings as necessary***
