Students are well aware of the benefits of a higher education, yet too many students – particularly those who start off underprepared – struggle to complete their degrees. IES funded research has shed tremendous light on both successful and unsuccessful practices to support students entering community college. Working collaboratively with policymakers and practitioners, research is helping to inform advances in developmental education at community colleges.
NCLD’s UDL-IRN International Summit
April 25-27, 2018: Orlando, FL
Universal Design for Learning (UDL) serves as a foundational framework for the design of modern learning environments to meet the needs of all learners. The growth of UDL, like many things in education, has taken on a life of its own. We see rapid adoption in education systems across the globe, but we’re still missing clearly defined practices and implementation measures. This is especially relevant today due to the recognition of the importance of UDL in ESSA state plans. The UDL-IRN is a nonprofit organization that works with CAST (the founders of UDL) and is focused on advancing the research and practice of UDL across the global education space. Connect with other education leaders at the fifth annual 2018 UDL-IRN International Summit this April 25-27 in Orlando, FL. Educators from around the globe gather at this three-day event to network, collaborate, and learn – enhancing the design of modern learning environments to meet the needs of all learners.
