We hope that your Summer includes equal parts adventure, relaxation, and rejuvenation.

(Be sure to check out the offerings on each of the specialists’ pages.)
Universal Design for Learning
The Iris Center offers a 2.5 hour module on UDL. Participants will explore the three brain networks associated with Universal Design for Learning and learn how to apply them to instruction, assessment, and materials.
The Transition Coalition offers a free, self-paced module that includes definitions, pertinent research, and case studies. After you have become more familiar with self-determination skills as an instructional practice, check out Virginia’s I’m Determined Project for some great resources.
