Jose Blackorby, Ph.D. will present "Universal Design For Learning 2017: A Framework Grows Up," which will describe the current status of Universal Design for Learning policy, practice, research and implementation, as well as new challenges the field faces that come with growth. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) began 15 years ago as a vision associated with CAST, Inc. (Center for Applied Special Technology) and a small group of researchers and policymakers. It is being increasingly adopted by schools as well as by curriculum and technology vendors.
